Review Summary: More straight forward and edgier than their previous effort Phenomenon, Force It presents yet another change in style for UFO, and the result is quite excellent...

1 of 2 thought this review was well written

Phil Mogg – vocals
Michael Schenker – guitar
Pete Way – bass
Andy Parker – drums

Force It, the second album by UFO that Michael Schenker appears on (and their fourth album in all), shows even more improvement in songwriting and the overall sound of the band. Phenomenon showed the start of something great, and Force It took that great to another level. Phenomenon still somewhat hung on to that "space rock" sound that the band started out making in the first place, but Force It completely ditches that sound, replacing it with straight forward rock. Michael Schenker gets to shine, and start showing his real style as a guitarist. Phil Mogg also shows a more aggressive vocal style than previous albums.

The whole album incorporates more guitars and solid fast grooves, with melody added by Phil Mogg, and solid drumming by Andy. The opener "Let it Roll" may be Phil's most aggresive vocal performance to date, with him shouting and yelling the lyrics, but pulls it off nicely. "High Flyer" is the only ballad on the album, and slows things down which is a nice addition to Force It. "Out in the Street" is the most dynamic song, featuring pianos, tempo changes, and excellent vocals. The grooving "This Kid's" and "Dance your Life Away" both feature some of band members best performances.

One of UFO's best albums, this is recommended if you are a fan of great guitar playing, and 70's rock. The entire album can be played through without skipping a track, and not many albums can have that said about them. Just please do yourself a favor and check it out!
