I think this is exciting news as well :)

I love the McAuley era Schenker stuff too, Save Yourself is by far the weaker of the three though and Perfect Timing the peak. For me Assault Attack the debut and 2'nd in that order (BTD good but not that consistent) but though a different beast both PT and the McAuley Schenker albums are stellar and close to if not on par with the first 3 mentioned. After the Mc Auley era it gets more spotty quality wise, with some highlights in between.
