“Sharks”, UFO’s latest release is excellent but certainly can’t compare to their 70’s material such as “Rock Bottom”, “Shoot Shoot”, “Too Hot To Handle” or “Lights Out”. It’s fair to compare it to 1997’s reunion album “Walk On Water” which says alot about this latest release. Michael Schenker is still perhaps one of the most underrated guitarists as he shines on songs such as “Perfect View” (a gutsy rocker with a nice hook to it), “Fighting Man” (another hard hitting rocker), “Deadman Walking” (another rocker with a catchy hook) and “Quicksilver Rider” (excellent guitar driven track). There’s a great, almost ZZ Top sounding cut, in “Someone’s Gonna Have To Pay” with Schenker sounding like Billy Gibbons. And the first song “Outlaw Man” is excellent and utilizes slide guitar throughout the track. The other songs are excellent too, especially “Serenity” which is a nice downtempo rock song with excellent guitar and vocals. Phil Mogg as usual handles the vocal duties and does so with energy and enthusiasm. Pete Way’s bass pounds with perfection and compliments Aynsley Dunbar’s drumming in each and every song. If you enjoyed “Walk On Water” then you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended!
