Its well noted that during that period of time Phil was very much influenced by Springsteen and it shows in his lyric writing and I agree Steve the best of Moggs career (there are still some influences in the newer stuff but not as profound). If memory serves rightly during that early to mid 80's period rock journo's Mogg was also heavily influenced by movies he'd been watching. So that also explains the more vivid storytelling within the lyrics.

As for which albums to buy I concur with Steve's appraisal above. There are still a couple fo killer songs on Makin Contact unfortunately the rest of the album is poor. Misdemeanour is worth owning for some great AOR songs but do not expect a 'classic' UFO album.
