Ufo rocks well and solidly
Michael P. Dobey | colorado springs | 04/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 1982 release, which went top ten, was the bands strongest studio release since their last cd with Michael Schenker: 1978's "Obsession". The band starts off with a solid rock classic 'the writer" which describes the now vanishing power broker newspaper or magazine writer who can make or break careers in music or politics. And from there to the end of the disc there isn't a filler song to be found. "Feel it" is probably the standout hard rock track on here; it can hold it's own with the best of their whole output.
There is even a superior ballad on here 'back into my life". This is highly skilled and top notch metal the kind in which you expect good playing and singing. And this would be the bands last great disc until
1995's 'walk on water" . The best thing is however the many bonus tracks on this disc and that makes this a better buy than ever."

"i like qute a bit of ufo,s mechanix. songs like the writer,doing it all for you,back into my life,feel it and dreaming to name a few!!unfortuneatly founding member bassist pete way left after the mechanix tour. because he did,nt like the direction ufo was heading in musically with some of the tunes of mechanix..i saw ufo on the tour for mechanix and they were great they opened for rainbow!!andy parker the drummer had this huge chrome drum set paul chapman had a white b.c. rich,pete way and neil carter had white washburn basses and guitars..ufo played almost every great song they made including electric phase which paul chapman played slide guitar on!....well this album seems to end the 80,s era...so get it!!!"
No need to adjust

"Mechanix was in my humble opinion a make-or-break effort. The band decided to just sort of let nature take it's course and the rest is history as they say. "Mechanix" may not be their strongest effort but it is well worth having in your collection and gets 4 stars due to making changes yet not changing anything. There was some fine tuning done but the overall UFO sound still remained intact. I think the title was very fitting as well. And the remaster effort is also very good. Every now and then something will be remastered and actually sound worse than the original cd. Not in this case."
