The band's best studio album of all time. Great production, super guitar work and arrangements. This one is an ass-kickin' classic. Any hard rock fan who does not own a copy of this should be shot.

From: Jennifer Date: April 24, 2001 at 11:27
The guy who posted before me is right-if you don't have a copy of this you need to be shot. THIS IS A CLASSIC!

From: Nigel Date: April 24, 2001 at 22:55
I see a few other die-hard UFO fans have posted here also! Tremendous record from the band! Top-notch with no question. Schenker's guitar work was fabulous, and Parker's drums never sounded better. This one's a winner.

From: Steve Date: April 25, 2001 at 13:19
Classic! Only UFO can Rock Me!

From: Wayne Date: April 26, 2001 at 11:38
The best studio recording featuring Schenker by far, but not the best studio work ever. Equal with 'Making Contact' and 'Misdemeanor' as the three best UFO studio projects ever. 'Rodeo' and 'Cherry' from this one are so hot.

From: Rodney Date: April 28, 2001 at 11:52
Fine piece of work from one of the best bands in history. This group should have been bigger, and this album should have gotten much more respect. It's just a gem.

From: Conner Date: April 29, 2001 at 21:56
By far their best work with Schenker, save for the live material of course. 'Born To Lose' features one of the best guitar solos ever laid down. CLASSIC!

From: Melinda Date: May 5, 2001 at 11:12
More great music on this one, with every song being a super. 'Born To Lose, 'Rodeo,' 'Only You Can,' and 'Cherry' would be the best, if you had to choose the best ones on this set. Classic record for sure, and should be better known in the rock world. This is one of those magical pieces of music you don't see much at all any more.

From: Frank Turner Date: May 11, 2001 at 12:18
Ditto on all the above statements---THIS ONE IS A MUST!!!!

From: RockDude Date: May 20, 2001 at 14:06

From: Kobyashi Date: June 2, 2001 at 11:27
Most likely the best UFO material ever, save for the live record, of course. A major disappointment that 'Phenom' did not achieve super-status with other classic albums, as it most assuredly deserves more recognition than it ever has gotten. Beyond Comparison!

From: Lauren Lane Date: August 5, 2001 at 17:00
I love this album. It's my all time favorite record and the songs are just wonderful. Mogg is one of those singers who just makes you feel the music when you hear it.

From: Tony Date: April 13, 2002 at 7:14
Is there a better one/two album punch than 'Lights Out' and this album?? How many cd's can you play all the way through and every song is great with no fillers?? There's not enough positive things to say about these guys as they should be a mainstay in any hard rock cd collection.

From: Doug Date: June 14, 2002 at 23:24
This one is a real hard rock classic. Go out and buy it and you'll understand.

From: Beevuss Date: September 16, 2002 at 20:25
This is ONE OF THE BEST studio albums of all time. YOU NEED IT.

From: Freddy Date: November 2, 2002 at 21:45
This doth kicketh ass!

From: Date: February 16, 2003 at 17:39
ONLY YOU CAN ROCK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Vic from Oz Date: May 7, 2003 at 14:14
An amazing album. 'Looking out for No 1' is a beautiful song....'Only you can Rock me' is an all time classic. A band who were ahead of their time and totally underrated.

From: Eddie Date: May 25, 2003 at 20:24
The best UFO album ever.For any guy who ever thought 'the girl that got away',Cherry says it all.

From: mongoose Date: June 16, 2003 at 21:02
oh yes what a record,just brilliant.looking out for no 1 a fantatic track. ufo on top form just buy it and see you wont regret it

From: John D Date: December 6, 2003 at 16:28
The best rock album of all time ! and I have a big collection of various groups.

From: Dex Date: January 19, 2004 at 18:54
a classic of our time

From: Brian Mc Date: January 30, 2004 at 3:40
One of the few rock lp's that can bring tears to my eyes. There's an element of meloncholia laid between the lines that hooks you and penetrates your skin no matter how thick it is. One song can break your heart while the next will accelerate it! I find it sad that this was the end of the road for Schenker('till later). What's more sad is that with all the classic rock FM in the states, very little UFO makes it to the daily playlist. 'Obsession' is awesome, flawless, classis, timeless.

From: AOR freaky Date: January 30, 2004 at 7:06
The best Ufo ever, and the best line-up ever ! Great songs and Michael at his best ! Ufo is a fine band ! Right, Brian Mc !

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 18:46
I remember the first time I listened to this one: after a few hours I was growing little steel balls from all orifices. My mom rushed me to the doctor and he had to remove them as quick as possible. We later found out this was the result of NOT ENOUGH UFO. I was amazed, so I started listening and never looked back. Terrific disc, this one.

From: Jimbo Date: February 11, 2005 at 18:33
This CD is an unheralded classic in every sense of the word. It has excellent rockers, heartbreaking ballads, fine musicianship (Schenker is at his very best here) and a unique production that is both coolly detached and yet unquestionably heavy and melodic. One of those albums that is greater than the sum of its parts, best heard in its entirety, practically sweating an icy sheen of memorable hooks and power laden riffs, and once devoured not quickly forgotten. Easily one of my all time faves.

From: dabunsoyn Date: September 6, 2005 at 16:53
Ahhhhhh........ the melodies man, they just blow me away everytime. Always thought this was U.F.O at their very best, great songwriting, soaring guitar and for once, superb production. The two ballards 'Lookin out for no. 1' & 'Born to loose' give me the shivers.... & that's how it should be. A rare Classic!

From: Remastered Reason Date: February 2, 2006 at 20:25
Considered their best by many & surely a monumental album, UFO never flew any higher. Essential to any hard rock collection.

From: Real rock fan Date: December 10, 2008 at 17:20
The final classic era studio album from UFO. Some great songs on this one, Only You Can Rock Me, Hot N Ready, Cherry, You Don`t Fool Me, One More For The Rodeo and Born To Lose.This has never been my favourite UFO album but it`s been a while since I played it, so we`ll see if that`s changed with time!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 13, 2017 at 17:08
Lovely & solid release!!!...many good tracks for me in here in the shape of 1,2,5(nice),6,7,8,10 & 11...basically the whole album is quite enjoyable .84/100
