People gave this a low rating? Oh, that's right, if it doesn't contain a few songs from
their earlier days it's not quite ufo! It's easily as good as walk on water.the first
two songs are classic ufo,.mogg at his finest with excellent lyrics, personality,
sentiment, as mikes guitar playing is tailored to a snug fit.this is actually one of ufo
s best ever releases, period. And me? I was there in the mid 70's following closely
ufo.I also don't think obsession was their best release either, in fact, wild willing
etc was better , except the guitar playing, which wasn't all that needed, since the
spotlight was more on storytelling & vocals, but that was another album!
Covenant is an excellent CD.I think most of the later, newer fans don't really get this
CD, could be a maturity issue, I don't know, or you just don't truly understand the
roots of ufo, roots that aren't just tangled around classic songs like doctor,doctor,
lights out and rock bottom.I think Phil and Michael would relate to my thoughts.I won't
bother reviewing sharks...it's slightly less in raring than covenant , but has a few
songs.I can actually still listen to it today.sharks and covenant are solid ufo releases
that I'm proud of, so much better than past efforts with fill in guitar players.
