UFO No Heavy Petting
A consistent release by UFO with some nice tracks. There is a variety of tempos with different songs to choose from. Recommendations: "Can You Roll Her", "A Fool In Love", "Belladona"
Scorpions Return to Forever
The Scorps have received much criticism for their post '00s discography, something that I would not agree-up until now. Unbreakable was decent, Humanity was surprisingly good I thought. Return To Fover is probably the band's poorest release in their glorious 50 year career. From the first listening you realise that the effort put was minimal in both music and lyrics (they've set a new record for the word 'rock' in a single album). The Germans claim that the material was written between early 1980s up to 2014, but it seems that they've concentrated their best fillers/leftovers and put them in a final album. Recommend
Thunder Wonder Days
This was not an easy album to dig into. The only reason I gave it considerable listening was the fact that this band offered me at some point Backstreet Symphony and I was prepared to give it some chances. On the positives side, the eerie-screechy-shivery voice of Danny Bowes is still there and also the band's topics which concentrate on adolesence and nostalgia ("Wonder Days", "I Love the Weekend") was fine. However, the fact that it was difficult to find any hooks and the riffs were very "general" and ordinary ones, proved to be detrimental to my opinion. Recommendations: "Resurrection Day", "Broken"r
Pond (AUS) Man, It Feels like Space Again
Too much psych element which made me dislike this album. Full of distorted guitars and sounds and in most of the songs you can't appreciate how good the vocals are. Definitely not better than Tame Impala in my opinion. Recommendations: "Waiting Around For Grace", "Sitting Up On Our Crane", "Outside is The Right Side"
UFO Force It
UFO's second release with Schenker in their line-up stands equally as its predecessor. Schenker's electrifying and energetic riffs are the most distinguishable characteristic here. I found Mogg's performance a bit inferior here in comparison with Phenomenon but nonetheless, it suits the band's sound and style. Recommendations: "Let It Roll", "Shoot Shoot", "Love Lost Love", "Mother Mary", "Too Much of Nothing"
Pond (AUS) Beard, Wives, Denim
This is an interesting neo-psychedelic rock with nice distorted melodies and delicious riffs. They have many similarities with Tame Impala as they shared some band members in this album. However, what will make me listen to another album is "Fantastic Explosion of Time", a song which shows that these guys can develop their own successful style. Recommendations: "Fantastic Explosion of Time", "Elegant Design", "Sorry I Was Under The Sky", "Moth Wings"
UFO Phenomenon
The recruitment of Michael Schenker was one of the milestones in UFO's career as a band. His ideas and guitar skills in combination with Mogg's notable improvement on vocals, brought a fresh air in everything. In Phenomenon, UFO start to shape their identity as a hard rock band with some excellent tracks. "Doctor Doctor" and "Rock Bottom" are definitely the most notable moments here, with "Too Young To Know" and "Crystal Light" being my other personal favourites.
