Vinnie Moore: "To the Core"
By Rafael Sartori
TRANSLATED from PORTUGESE:
When someone resolves to make a list of "bands wronged" in the Rock, the UFO almost always gives the air of his grace, and in positions of prominence. This is because the group is doing nothing less than 40 years of road and all this time never to reach the 'mainstream' in the genre, even with good records. It is one of those groups that have a select audience, formed by musicians and other artists, and what influences of other bands that wins a lot of fans.
Now, the UFO launches "The Visitor," another album based on Hard Rock and Blues. The guitarist Vinnie Moore, who had a solid and recognized solo career, still showing full power and resourcefulness in the post with 'riffs' interesting and land on the measure.
The tracks are simple and lively, with a catch 70 - on occasion even remember the old Deep Purple. It's amazing how the British still have energy and willingness to compose, record and do shows for so long and so consistently.
"The Visitor" is not working and also brings some key tracks that will make the jump to the next before finishing. But in general, is a high quality disc, with songs sound as "villains & Thieves," "Ready Rock" and "Hell Driver."
It is noteworthy also for the excellent work of vocalist Phil Mogg, Paul Raymond's keyboardist and drummer Andy Parker. The bassist Pete Way did not attend the recording of health problems, and was replaced by Peter Pichler.
