WALK ON WATER was welcomed with open arms with UFO fans who just glad to see the original lineup together again after 17 years.
However, I do believe that in their zeal that some had overlooked the shortcomings of this 1995 offering.
There seems to be a conscious effort here to apply a more contemporary approach to the production. This gives the album a bit
of a formula smell, not unlike some of Schenker's own pop-metal albums prior to this one. I do really like "A Self Made Man",
"Dreaming Of Summer" and maybe even "Pushed To The Limit", but the rest isn't all that extraordinary.
WALK ON WATER falls somewhere between good and great for me, but nothing more than that. This album definitely isn't as good as
OBSESSION and doesn't quite warrant 4 stars. These songs just aren't the best work, even if they do sound good playing them. I
don't want to seem ungrateful though, because it was wonderful to see this lineup back together again in '95.
