MSG is back!! The new CD is better than Michael's previous efforts but not as great as the early MSG albums. This cd has 19 tracks but only a hand full of very good songs with some great soloing. The rest of the songs are very average at best. The thing I hate the most is that all the songs run together with out a break. Fave songs are Angel Of Avalon,Dreams Inside,Voice Of My Heart,Love Trade,Bitter Sweet and Tell A Story (great soloing on this song). Worth checking out. Rated 8/10.

Lo acabo de dar un par de escuchas y no esta mal, canciones parejas, la voz principal agrada a medias. Y eso de poner las canciones corridas y sin parar pues como que cae mal ehh.. a darle mas escuchas, ya que tambien cantan McAuley,Bonnet,Barden, y keeling una canción cada uno.

FINALY MY HONEST OPINION, TRACK BY TRACK: The first song THE RIDE is a very good song that sound sometimes like YNGWIE MALMSTEEN crazy enough, but from the MIKE VESCERA era, MICHAEL SCHENKER sound cool, with great riffs but the singer JARI TIURA is not very good on this one. SETTING SUN is nothing special. ANGEL OF AVALON is again great with some cool UFO riffs. LEIF SUNDIN does a great job on this song. Very classic hard rock the way we all love it

From: rene Date: July 25, 2006 at 4:21
DREAM INSIDE is very melodic and would be played on MTV if it would be 1987. Now JARI TIURA is doing a great job, much better then with the first track. DUST TO DUST:Great tune. Sound a little like BRUCE DICKINSON solo. Cool opening melodies and again TIURA is going a good job. VOICE OF MY HEART got some cool BLACK SABBATH riffs (MARTIN era), cool riffs by SCHENKER and JARI TIURA is great on this one.

From: rene Date: July 25, 2006 at 4:30
JOURNEY MAN is good, very good. Very special song in my opinion that is pure classic hard rock again. BIG DEAL(false Alarms) with KELLY KEELING on vocals is good too. Very heavy and loud. Again could have been on MTV if it would be 1987 or 88. Good melodies. ST.ANN is very short and nothing special. SHADOW LADY start increible heavy and its one of the faster tracks on this album. Good, very good. Got some URIAH HEEP feeling to it. Dont ask me why.

From: rene Date: July 25, 2006 at 4:42
LOVE TRADE is pure hard rock again. Very basic and could be a UFO song. HUMAN CHILD got again a BLACK SABBATH sound but this time more from DIO era. Very good riffs, and good song. Classic heavy metal at its best. One of my fave songs on this album. BITTER SWEET could be a THIN LIZZY track if they would still be around today. A mix between classic hard rock and power metal. BLIND ALLEY is not a bad song but nothing special to be honest.

From: rene Date: July 25, 2006 at 4:53
FREEDOM starts like a YNGWIE MALMSTEEN song but later it become a weak track. Not very good. LIFE VACATION with GARY BARDEN is a nice surprise. I think the most melodic song on this album. Nearly HARD AOR. Great track, sound realy like the early 80s. In the middle their is a stupid solo but the rest of the song is great. One of my fave on this album. ROCK´N´ROLL is with GRAHAM BONNET on vocals. He still know how to sing. DIO era RAINBOW (yeah, this sound crazy). Not my fave song even if the chor

From: rene Date: July 25, 2006 at 4:56
rus is one of the best on this album. GRAHAM sound like DAVID LEE ROTH sometimes (yeah, this is sounding very funny but true)and at the chorus like BRUCE DICKINSON. TELL A STORY start with a classic 80s hard rock sound that again could be on MTV if it would be 1988. Sound much like the band PETRA crazy enough. Very very good song in my opinion. LIFE GOES ON(INSTRUMENTAL) is a INSTRUMENTAL, nothing more then that. Good.

Being a huge Schenker fan, I was really looking forward to hearing this (the last of all his albums to be added to my collection - now I know why). My god, do I wish I hadn't bothered spending the £'s (albeit a small amount) on this complete Turkey of a disc. Of the 19 tracks on here, only 2 come up to anywhere near what I would call a reasonably good song and it just meanders on and on with virtually no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I don't say this very often, but don't go anywhere near crapfest unless you really want to damage your ears. PS. No I don't like it

From: fcmahlzeit Date: August 21, 2010 at 4:19
I totallly agree with Jez. I was looking forward to the disc too, and was disappointed too. The only song that is anywhere near to Michaels old standard is the track with Robin Mc Auley.

From: 123charpenay Date: February 26, 2018 at 13:53
some (rare) very greats songs with the magic playing of michael schencker,but many many (too much) fillers.finally this record is very long and boring.the great songs are very rare ,tracks 5 and 18 for example ,but the rest......this record is for die hard fans of msg.not for me.too too average ,a disapointing realise for me.
