|The first MSG album I bought. Love it still to this day. The production is not the best, but you get to hear the future of Michael Schenker, what a guitarist. Good, but Assault Attack is the best

|Essential Michael Schenker at it's best. You won't be sorry with this one. Gary Barden's great also.

|This record is phenomenal! Anyone who does not know Michael Schenker is very deprived-he is the best guitarist in the world. Van Halen would not want to plug in if he were in the same room as Michael. This guy set the trend for hard rock players when VH and Vai were still picking their noses. Check out "Into The Arena" Awesome!!! Michael, its unfair to compare anyone to you, because that player is sure to be embarrassed. You Rule!!!

|Great album. Good songs and Gary Braden is great on it. Suffers from a very dry production but still rocks hard. Lost Horizons is a classic.

|Weak production by Deep Purple's Roger Glover. First 2 tracks are bonfide classics, but the album kinda peters out after that. Schenker rips himself off on "Tales of Mystery". The music is identical to UFO's "Arbory Hill".

|Difficult to find a more melodic guitarist than Schenker. Don't know that I'd compare him to Van Halen or Vai- different styles altogether. The production, as mentioned, is not the greatest, but run through a good EQ and you'll find what you're looking for. I listened to Schenker for years in UFO and find his solo efforts refreshing. Barden is a good front-man for this album and Schenker's guitar work is very tight. Definitely worthy for fans of classically oriented Euro-based rock.

|A strong release! But where oh where is the CLASSIC 'Assault Attack'?? That is the best in my opinion.

|"Van Halen would not want to plug in if he were in the same room as Michael." Now, now, let's not over do it huh??? I think Schenker and Van Halen could make beautiful music together

|Everyone knows that Joe Satriani could play all of VH, Vai (he taught him) and Schenker's styles of guitar. Go Joe.

|Oh yeah, well I think CC Deville destroys all of the aformentioned guitarists... When it comes to makeup, that is. Schenker rocks with the best of them, and his brother shreds, too.

|HOLD ME BACK! The brains behind this is a genious. Slash my head off and kick it down the gutter with this one. Most excellent job.

|Schenker storms out the gate into his solo career with a sensational song full of expectation on overload. "Armed & Ready" delivers an immense groove that will quickly impress. Also, any fan would note the presence of a few moody sci-fi rockers which were characteristic of UFO. Really this cd is an extension of his heyday with Mogg & company.

|MSG First album, a rock classic. Armed & Ready is the perfect song to start a concert, cry for the nations is a concert favorite (minus the intro), victim of illusion is very solid too, Bijou Pleasurette is a beautiful instrumental, into the arena is another classic Schenker live, tales of mystery is the complete song for a short instrumental that is in the UFO-Obssesion album. Lost Horizons is another fan favorite. One of the best Schenker (the melodic guitar God) Efforts.
