What Can I Say About this....Classic Album!!!
Vocalist Phil Mogg, guitarist Mick Bolton, bassist Pete Way, and drummer Andy Parker formed the British space metal outfit UFO in 1969. Originally known as Hocus Pocus, the group, which took the name UFO in honor of a London club,
debuted in 1971 with UFO 1.
Both the album and its follow-up, the same year's Flying, found great success in Japan, France, and Germany, but went barely noticed in the band's native country; as a result, their third effort, 1972 Live, was released only in Japan.
In 1974, Bolton left the group; after brief trial runs with ex-Pink Fairies guitarist Larry Wallis and future Whitesnake member Bernie Marsden, former Scorpion Michael Schenker stepped in as a permanent replacement in time to record 1974's "Phenomenon", which sported a harder-edged guitar sound.
"Phenomenon" is the fourth album by the British rock band UFO, released in May, 1974. Guitarist Michael Schenker joined UFO in June, 1973 arriving in the UK directly from his German band, Scorpions, and without speaking a word of English.
"Phenomenon" is the first album UFO with Michael Schenker, who truly changed the group and led them to later success. This is actually the album that goes back to the real story of UFOs, and no doubt it will remain the most important in their works - you can assign a similar meaning as "In Rock" Deep Purple and "Aqualung" Jethro Tull.
The emergence of a group Schenker genius,changed UFO band, which playing interesting music, but for a small group of sympathizers, in the true star, and then the rock legend. This does not mean that the plate is dominated his style of playing, and the more that is a copy of the style of Scorpions.
Guitarist Michael Schenker's impact upon UFO's career cannot be overestimated. Before the German teenager's arrival (he was only 19 when he jumped ship from the Scorpions), the British rockers' early albums of half-baked space rock had been completely ignored everywhere but Japan.
But with Schenker on board the group, would receive ,sound a well-needed attitude injection,toward the Anglo-hard rock style that would make them famous. That is not to say that their first collaboration ''Phenomenon'' was an instant home run. Quite the contrary, as the band seemed a tad wary of giving Schenker's more aggressive style complete freedom to roam, in the budding guitar hero the impact of promising rockers
UFO Music has become its own, distinctive expression. Composers Moggu remained at the forefront, but the support from this point will often Schenker, Pete Way and the undersigned is no longer just the two songs ("Oh My" and "Too Young To Know").
Schenker adds freshness compositions, melodic sound, and of course dazzling technique. The combination of ambitious but clumsy music, we presented UFOs on two previous albums, with those very qualities Schenker guitar, liberated from their music, that which will be celebrated always been a UFO, which gives them a unique position among the other legends of rock - full of passion, energy, real rock 'buzz'.
Plate certainly not boring, especially accustomed to the lengthy, tedious group composition of the previous album. The material is in fact quite a bit different - rather, later associated with the "fumes". UFO presents here quite a lot of calm songs like "Crystal Light", "Space Child", "Time On My Hands" and "Lipstick Traces". The latter is a short instrumental utworek Schenker, not too ambitious and rather naive, but interesting supplemental disc and toning aggressive cuts.
UFO, which we know and love best heard in a joyful "Oh My", "Too Young Too Know", and above all the classic and immortal hits, the group - "Rock Bottom" and "Doctor Doctor". "Rock Bottom" is absolutely brilliant, hard rock song with a distinctive, aggressive riff and typical vocal amelodycznym Mogg. This song is a definite success Schenker, passed the entrance exam for six - but we have a great riff and one of the best guitar solos German.
"Doctor Doctor" is still probably the biggest hit of the group, again with the typical ufo riff - simple but brilliant (zeppelin something like "Whole Lotta Love"), beginning with an introduction Schenker's mood, gradually gaining steam and speed. It is interesting to add that "Doctor Doctor" was later numerous covers, among other things, he performed concerts Iron Maiden.
The album was also great Willie Dixon's blues, though skillfully colored "ufowskim" style - "Built For Comfort", well, showing the versatility of the musicians of the group.
"Phenomenon" is a breakthrough album for the group. UFO has developed its own style, which will be present in their music forever, even after the departure of Schenker. We set the expectations for the next production of the group was a challenge that the music came out as the most good, as evidenced by another, no less brilliant and successful group of
on the stage to the end of the seventies.
