About this deal

those who ventures in this kind of music, for classical trained prog listner this one might be a desaster. peut-être un peu trop hard fm, mais néanmoins des titres comme Vigilante font de cet album un des meilleurs de Magnum mais pas un des plus typiques. I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Capitalising on the success of On a Storyteller's Night, Magnum changed to a more commercial direction with Vigilante.

I decided to replace my old cd as some tracks had always seemed to jump so I was quite disappointed to find the new does the same so perhaps it is a mastering fault when the it was transferred from vinyl. From the breathy, synthy opening of Lonely Night to the ecstatic, drum-clattering coda of Back Street Kid, these are just nine top-notch songs given the best glossy, mid-80s production values by the skilled hand of Roger Taylor.

The weakest tracks are the first three and the last, but the ones in the middle are all good ones; Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping), Red On The Highway, Holy Rider, and When The World Comes Down are actually not bad at all! Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic.

The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound. Tracks such as "Lonely Night", "Need a Lot of Love", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "Vigilante" laid the groundwork for the group to reach their commercial and creative peak on their follow-up UK Top 5 album, Wings of Heaven. Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The album was produced by Roger Taylor of Queen and the sound of the album is very much of its time. The gloss serves to the band's advantage too, in that it reins in the beardy, prog-rock tendencies of some of their earlier work and draws attention to the concentrated quality in the songwriting, and especially to Bob Catley's superbly paced singing. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
