Strange cover. This should be an Ufo record ...
This was a nice surprise. Ufo are able to do a normal record or a superb record. This one is between the two.

Love is forever is a good starter, expressing an 'interesting philosophy' this song just rocks! Unraveled is even better, the best song of the record, with an obessive rythm and funny lyrics. This is a Mogg/Way collaboration. Miss the lights is not a bad song, the same as the following, midnight train, but it is not as catchy as the other 3 ... I can not understand why UFO chose that one to begin the concert of my life? Ok, not a marvelous one, just ok.
Fool's gold initiates with a magnific Schenker solo, and the song is mid tempo until nearly the end. Good song again :)
Then i find nothing interesting until Serenade, which is a real good one, very good... comercial? Who cares!.
A live bonus cd makes this package more attractive, and it makes it more valuable.

You will like it if you are a die hard, and you may like it if you are into hard rock/metal.

Ufo is one of my favourite groups, i can't help it.
From all my concerts -and all of them have been really good: Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Acdc, Metallica, Megadeth, Diamond Head, Judas Priest, Mötley crüe, Alice cooper, Scorpions, Helloween, Mr Big, Aerosmith, Dio- i would choose 2 really really specials:
-1997, a kid's dream, original Kiss in make-up :-)
-the concert from Ufo i lived in 2004 was the concert of my life ... it was just perfect, not the ideal set list -for the new songs, basically... hey, half of strangers in the night (the best live album ever!) included :-D -, but just in front, 4th line, bouncing and screaming 'only you can rock me' and all the songs, perfectly executed, no boring drum solos, just the songs as they are, and Vinnie and Jason just fit perfectly, Phil sang really well, Paul was where he had to be and Pete, well, he was the soul of the concert, rockin' & rockin' again :-)

9/10 nice to have
