2.0 poorRobbit | June 22nd 16

MISDEMEANOR is essentially a Phil Mogg solo album, although Chrysalis likely insisted that he market it as a new UFO album. This was the first of two albums Phil did with Atomik Tommy McClendon, whose guitar acrobatics are rife with flash, rather than the intricate melodic phrasing of either Schenker or Chapman. The keyboard tones are nauseatingly 80s sounding and overall album is a bit cheesy. Phil Mogg's plaintive delivery on songs like "This Time" (one of the few highlights) just seems incongruous with the stylized, commercial production around him. Very disappointing.

Low point for UFO, production is thin and sterile and that Japanese guy on guitar with the silly name didn't suit the band at all.

It's often underrated. It's a fact that they tried to keep things mainstream with doing a quite AOR-like album with much synthetizers, but it has it's own interesting atmosphere. There are also classic-sounding and typical riffs all over the album, which is more than excellent. Hearing tunes like "Night Run", "Heaven's Gate", or "Blue" and "Name of Love", you say to yourself: "Hey, sounds like a real classic. I've heard this before somewhere."
Also, I think, if you think about music and names.. a band named UFO.. what kind of music could they play? I think this albums sound world fits the best to their name.
