I think, all things considered...this is pretty damn good. Yeah, at his age Rogers vocals have changed a little. To be expected. But he does great job on this. The classic WHO elements are there...sounds great. https://youtu.be/h2IN8wYqQ6E

dUg is unique and I’m kinda glad he’s doesn’t sound like a many others. It’s a huge factor in making this band stand out and different. He fits this band perfectly

It arrived..I put it on nice and loud and let it play. What an absolute monster of a record! The sound is fantastic. This is how “Rock” records should sound. It’s better than Scatterbrain, in that in think it’s got more melodic touches..even in the heavy stuff. A couple of challenging tracks towards the end, but that’s fine by me. I expected it. The first 8 and last track are great a

Also agree. I recall when he was regarded...pretty much by all the rock fan community, as one of the greatest entertainer and frontmen out there. He was NEVER a vocal great, he did in the studio what was required for the record, live he just “partied”...and we did with him. Reading what some people say about him now, you’d think he was on a par with Pavarotti in the past.

QR4 was intentionally a departure from some elements of their earlier sound and style. They wanted to go a more powerful bluesy rock, a la WhiteSnake. Listening to it back to back with its predecessor QRIII, you really can hear that shift in direction. It just needed IMO, a little more guitar up in the mix

The best Frankie could do, is call the three guys in ROUGH RIOT, Paul Shortino, Carlos Cavazo and Sean McNabb...and make a follownup to QR4. The real deal, good musicians and singers and add some credibility back to the band/name again. QR4/king of the Hill or whatever it was known as; was a good record, could’ve done with a little more balls in the mix, but I reckon there could be a great

It’s does sound like a cross between No Heavy Petting and Wild, The Willing era UFO. Excellent. UFO have done some good writing in the last decade, but the choice of producer/mixer for several records with Vinnie was a bad one.

It’s probably fortunate for them that re-wrote the words and re-titled the song that became 5705, as that’s the one song that really broke through (but sadly it wasn’t maintained). Great band. I always like Jorn’s version of TDTECF.

UFO - Long Gone Whilst it’s the whole song and lyrics that set its eerie haunting atmosphere. The Outro section (from about 5 mins in) is just a brilliant use of the riff colliding with orchestration. The cherry on the top to a brilliant bit of writing. The ending seconds are sublime. GNR copies this very closely with the ending to Prostitute. https://youtu.be/0JJWi2Uf9g4

Second rate AC/DC meets Accept re-write merchants. Complete and utter crap. Faux and pedestrian DC wannabes.

Sure, he’s got an ego. But this band is ON FIRE. He’s two amazing guitarists and appears happier with this band. I’d say...let all the negative shit go. There’s actually a good band here and it could bode well for a killer record with this new band. He’s no more or less a dick than many singers we’ve admired in the past. The difference? Social media. Just enjoy the band

Robin George was writing and playing Lynott in 84/85, and they discussed reforming the band as was, but with RG in Sykes place. I think, knowing how good Robin plays, he would have been a good foil to Gorham.

Sounds great. Love the previous records. See LEP started the Vegas residency with Die Hard The Hunter as the opener! Good ROCK track to set the pace. Much better than the plod Of Let’s Go.

https://youtu.be/V-XpYmjZtAg Great slow atmospheric and more melodic track (than the lead single). Nice restrained solo from Lynch with a Middle Eastern flavour. Many of us have said it before, but the production and mix of KXMs music is fantastic. Clear, punchy and all the balls you need when required. Dynamics is the key here. The in house teams of labels like FRONTIERS need to learn from g

Ahhh, gotcha. I think it’s some sort of weave he has. As for DD, saw him one or twice in London post the classic era, once with John Norum, and it was as per this video. He looked totally bored, played annoying “air drums” to everything, and seemed more preoccupied with his monitors / in ears etc, and to be honest, it looked like a rehearsal. This is why I don’t want the classic band

Yeah..these guys have nothing to prove. Three great musicians and writers that for once, have made a “supergroup” genuinely work. A old school yet modern power trio that writes from inspiration in the studio, and follows the vibe and flow of the creative process. That’s brilliant in a world of so much manufactured and horrible forced “put together projects” that have zero spark or fire.

The first 2 records are great, 5 or 6 really great tracks on each. The 3rd Loud And Clear is a lost classic of the genre. I thought that was the album that might have got them more attention. But..for whatever reason, I didn’t. Steve Lynch is a great player and when I met him in Cardiff of all places, he was super nice and spent a lot of time chatting away.

Saw them with Axl, and he was totally respectful to the band and music, and delivered BIG TIME.

I saw TYKETTO on the Sine tour, and it was a good gig. The material came across good live. But the record was a dud. After two belting records, it was just flat and lacked any real spark, truly great moments that stand out. Plus the cover art and new band logo detracted even further from its vibe. It could’ve been better had they stuck with the bigger sound.

They were superb at Shep Bush. Great to see a band with stripped back staging, just some decent lights and rely pretty much 100% on the songs and performance / characters of the band. I’m pretty sure the set-list represented every studio album. I wish UFO had had a set-list as career spanning on their last tour.

Going to see them next month in London, supported by Pete way, whose band now features Lawrence Archer and Clive Edwards...so almost the High Stakes UFO line-up.

Ac/Dc “Flick Of...” should never have stared with the “ploddy” Rising Power. It’s should’ve have been Guns For Hire. First impressions do last.

Listened to both just earlier this week on my commute. I always though INVASION was one of the best records of that whole specific genre. OTT...but brilliantly OTT. Does he over shred? Maybe, but that record was all about taking it to 11 and pushing it a little more. Great songs on it. ALL SYSTEMS, has its moments, I think it’s food but not as good the debut. Slaughters whimpering style voc

Neil was at the Shep Bush gig a week before Paul passed. Who’d have thought eh. It’s the logical and best choice, and great that Neil has stepped in to help the guys fulfil the final tour.
