I've had this one since it's release and I don't get it? The production SUCKS!But I can't stop listening to it.Th e man has talent.

From: Herls Date: December 5, 2001 at 21:18
The album is great vocal wise. Just listen to never trust a stranger!!

From: B. CASARIN (MEX Date: August 16, 2002 at 21:45
the track on and on kick ass!!! a very punchy record!!! rating 8.5/10

From: Steve T Date: September 15, 2002 at 11:34
Another good album with a poor production. The songs are great and Gary still cuts it. After this and One Night At Budokan MSG lost their way. They were always a great live band though.

Para mi lo mejor que hizo Michael en estudio. Ademās en este disco estān los gloriosos ON AND ON , LOOKING FOR LOVE, NEVER TRUST A STRANGER, BUT I WANT MORE, READY TO ROCK, todos clāsicos en su carrera. A pesar de la pobre produciōn es un 9/10. Cozy avasallante como de costumbre y Gary Barden en su mejor performance en la banda. Schenker melodioso y genial, sigue haciendo gala del buen gusto a la hora de tocar la guitarra. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

Good stuff! Listen to the lead guitar at the end of "Looking for love". Simply amazing -the man has feeling. Most songs are great although the album suffers a bit productionwise. Still, you should own this album!

From: Gar Date: May 9, 2003 at 5:15
Easily the best MSG abum with Gary Barden(well studio album anyway. ONE NIGHT AT BUDOKAN is awesome!). That's Stephen Stills doing background vocals on "Never Trust A Stranger", one of the many highlights of the disc. My favorite track here is "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie". Brilliant stuff that still holds up 20+ years later.

From: Fulvio, Italy Date: December 23, 2003 at 6:43
This album rocks !!! never heard solos like these... probably the best MSG release, even with a poor production michel kick ass anytime. Lookin for love, on and on, let's sleepin dogs lie, are you ready to rock... and so on... a truly masterpiece! Thanks Michael!!!

From: Metal Pete Date: January 21, 2004 at 18:57
Ditto, a true classic! I have to give it a 9, it was so very good. 'Are you Ready to Rock' was an anthem that pulled me INTO metal in teh first place, along with 'Living after Midnight'!! Kudos to MSG

From: Schenker Fan Date: June 26, 2004 at 15:40
Agree with above EXCEPT for "never trust a stranger" Thank GOD ALMIGHTY for cd burners; i just leave that piece of _ _ _ _ off. I still have the original vinyl version I bought in 1982! One of the GREATEST guitarists of all times (along with Iommi, Page, Hendrix, Kossoff, and Tommy Bolin)! Kulvertmannen you hit the nail on the head with your observation of the "Looking For Love" solos! I thought only felt that way!!! All 4 of the original MSG's rule (Built to Destroy Euro version kicks).

TALENT! Pure talent, raw gutz and righteous energy. Beg, borrow or steal to find this one. Once you have it, keep it under lock and key.

Of all the MSG releases this is definately my favourite studio release. I liked the debut alot but, this has the better material with a slightly more commercial slant on the songs & more Keys in the mix aswell. Not to bothered about 'Are You Ready To Rock' that much, but the rest still stands up well. 'On & On' is a brilliant song with it's haunting Keyboard intro & is the clear winner on here, although 'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie' 'But I Want More' & 'Looking For Love' also stand proud. Excellent!!!

From: Lennie Date: December 15, 2005 at 8:38
Is this available on cd?? If so, does anyone know where it can be found? Thanks!

Lennie - All the MSG catologue was re-issued in Japan in 2000, remastered with bonus tracks (no bonuses on this one though). Got mine along with the debut & 'Built To Destroy' from CDJapan. There are copies on Amazon aswell. Shouldn't be a problem tracking a copy down.!!!

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 16, 2006 at 13:33
This second studio release is an extension of the first solo cd by the ex-UFO axeman. Hard riffing, great grooves, & good song structure.

From: edwithmj Date: October 9, 2010 at 19:48
I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more reviews and ratings on here. This is some classic hard rock with every song being excellent and well played. On and On and Secondary Motion are my favourite songs.

From: Axelinger Date: February 11, 2012 at 18:06
That eerie, haunting intro to On And On never fails to conjure up images of an old western ghost town saloon. It just reminds me of a scene of ghosts moving about an abandoned building in a ghost town. Weird, huh?

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 12, 2012 at 17:35
As i said before i've never been a fan of Gary Barden's voice,even though i must admit that in studio albums the man is another thing...this one is a good album with songs that nowadays are classics of the teutonic guitar player...the ones i like from here are "Ready To Rock","On And On","Let Sleeping Dogs Lie","But I Want More" & "Never Trust A Stranger"(nice softy song)...my objective and not to please anybody rate is 85/100...

From: hair metal again Date: April 6, 2012 at 1:31
excellent release by MSG and this one has better production due to Ron Nevison!Michael &Gary are stars and they prove that in this one!ALL the songs are great and i must say that this is a must have for hard rockers !essential!
