Description

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. It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. While the band had wanted Rodney Matthews to paint the artwork, the record company chose a different cover against the band's wishes.

The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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.

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 initially gave only one star to this album, but I have now upgraded my rating to a more fair two stars.

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! Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. 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.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. There's truly not a bad track here, and different ones emerge as favourites each time I play it - currently it's Midnight, for its risky but perfectly judged saxophone climax, and Holy Rider, for that boomy, epic soundscape that prefigures what the Killers created in Sam's Town. Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one. Produced by David Richards and Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the band's sound stepped towards that of 1980s Queen, with keyboards much higher in the mix than guitar. 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.

The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound.

Vigilante was the first Magnum album I bought (still on vinyl back in 1991 as I didn't have a CD player then) and I still believe it is their best one. Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest. While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic. Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music.
