UFO’s 21st studio album 'Seven Deadly' represents a return to the classy hard rock sound upon which their reputation was originally founded. Line-up stability has paid dividends with a solid release that is full of top tunes that stay in your head right from first play, foot stomping opener 'Fight Night' being a prime example. The rocking 'Wonderland' showcases Phil Mogg's voice, as distinctive as ever, whilst the blues tinged 'The Last Stone Rider' features another classic guitar riff and a great chorus, underpinned by Paul Raymond's classic hard rock keyboard textures. Guitarist Vinnie Moore is prominent throughout, his playing both melodic and bluesy. On 'Burn Your House Down' he lays down some breathtaking lead breaks reminiscent of his early virtuoso period. UFO are back on true form with an album that is essential listening!
