Yes, I am finally reviewing this album!|
The new Mogg/Way sees the guys filling in time before getting back to the studio with Michael Schenker for another UFO album - due hopefully later this year.
But the guys don't tread water, this is a pretty solid album.
The last Mogg/Way album Edge Of The World I thought was OK, while not being brilliant.
This album I think is very good without being brilliant!
It is certainly better than the last album and contains the best songs I have heard from any of these guys since the UFO Walk On Water album. Now that was awesome!
The sound is what is to be expected, very close to UFO, but without that extra quality that Schenker brings to the band.
Muddy's Cold and Too Close To The Sun are OK, but maybe plod along a little.
Jerusalem & This Is A Life on the other hand are more in your face and have a great kick to them.
Living & Dying has a cool bluesy groove to it, while King Of The City rocks along nicely.|
A few other tracks like Death In The Family and Last Man In Space just drag a little for my liking.
