CD Reviews

AN OVERLOOKED MASTER
Michael Gulley | 03/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Michael Schenker is one of the most talented guitarists of the genre. Unfortunately, he is often overlooked for more commercial players such as Eddie Van Halen. One listen to this CD will vindicate Michael, and show where EVH learned a few of his licks. Tasteful solos, melodic but ferocious rhythms, and attitude to spare. Schenker shone brightly at a time when few cared. His influence is all around. Learn from the master - buy this CD."
Someone Screwed this mix up.
Marlon Hill | des moines, iowa USA | 02/10/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a revamped version of the original release from '83. It is slicker, but that's it. They cut short some of the guitar solos. The best example is Red Sky, which was called "Red Sky at Night" on the Chrysalis release. This was one of my favorite Schenker songs, but when I listened to it I could'nt believe how it was butchered. This BGO version just doesn't sound like the original at all. Skip this one and find the original."
Great music but beware of this version
J. KORTSCH | Oconomowoc, WI United States | 07/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great album that I have loved for years but watch out! If you are expecting this Beat Goes On release to be a CD version of the original European mix, you are in for a letdown. This CD (although it has the same track listing and order as the original mix) has the music as it appeared on the remixed American release (with the slicker versions of some songs and the appearance of the other singer on "Still Love That Little Devil"). I think this version is OK but the original release has a better "edge" to it that makes it a 5 star release. Good luck finding the original though."
