Pete Way returns !
Daniel James Macdonald | Sydney,Nova Scotia ,Canada | 07/27/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the album which most die-hards know was the return on of the Gibson Thunderbird thumping Welshman-Pete Way,which completed the essential UFO element of Mogg/Way the core of UFO,yes I think UFO sounds best w/Schenker ,but Chapman also served them well(this particular album w/ Lawrence Archer).I remember the joy of driving to Boston, this disc being one of my primary goals,getting it & calling a friend of mine,an equally big UFO fan upon returning in the middle of the night waking her up over certain tracks(she wasn't angry) -memorable !"
Refreshing Return to Form

"Reviewer: Wild Colonial Boy (England) - See all my reviews
After the truly awful "Misdemeanour" album and the equally below par "Ain't Misbehavin" it appeared that UFO were gone forever. Then when you think it's all over back comes Phil Mogg and his rock `n' roll roots to produce "High Stakes and Dangerous Men". This for me is a refreshing five star return to quality. Having split from the Chrysalis label, out goes the glitter hair and glam rock and back like a bad penny comes Pete Way. With a new line up featuring Laurence Archer (ex Stampede) on guitars and Clive Edwards (ex Wild Horses) this album is a successful if underrated rocker that recaptures their 70's and 80's formula.
Rule number one don't call it UFO unless Phil Mogg and Pete Way are in the line up. These two original members and the driving force and song writing combination that created the trademark identity which is back here in abundance. The opener "Borderline", "Primed for Time", "Running Up the Highway" and "Let the Good Times Roll" are perfect examples and there is not really a bad track on here. There is also that blues feel in "Back Door Man" with most of the tracks punctuated with slick lead guitar work. Edwards is solid on drums and Archer is excellent on guitar if sometimes a little over indulgent. His playing is very much in the Schenker mould and should please fans of the old classic line up.
It's a pity this '92 line up did not stay together for more than this solitary studio offering but the reunion of the classic line up and the "Walk on Water" album a little later more than makes up.
