About this deal

The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound. Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. Produced by David Richards and Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the band's sound stepped towards that of 1980s Queen, with keyboards much higher in the mix than guitar. those who ventures in this kind of music, for classical trained prog listner this one might be a desaster. Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music.

Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares? Tracks such as "Lonely Night", "Need a Lot of Love", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "Vigilante" laid the groundwork for the group to reach their commercial and creative peak on their follow-up UK Top 5 album, Wings of Heaven.Vigilante was the first Magnum album I bought (still on vinyl back in 1991 as I didn't have a CD player then) and I still believe it is their best one. Vigilante" e' quel disco che ti fa assaporare il classico Rock fatto di chitarre possenti ma mielosee da atmosferiche tastiere che rendono tutto magico.

I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one. Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description).

The album was produced by Roger Taylor of Queen and the sound of the album is very much of its time.
