Description

The weakest tracks are the first three and the last, but the ones in the middle are all good ones; Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping), Red On The Highway, Holy Rider, and When The World Comes Down are actually not bad at all! Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest.

The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound. 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. those who ventures in this kind of music, for classical trained prog listner this one might be a desaster. It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best. Capitalising on the success of On a Storyteller's Night, Magnum changed to a more commercial direction with Vigilante.This is a very good Magnum album - I don't like it as much as "Kingdom of Madness", "On a Storyteller's Night", "Wings of Heaven" or "Princess Alice and the Broken Arrow", but it is up there close to their best.

Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. The gloss serves to the band's advantage too, in that it reins in the beardy, prog-rock tendencies of some of their earlier work and draws attention to the concentrated quality in the songwriting, and especially to Bob Catley's superbly paced singing. I initially gave only one star to this album, but I have now upgraded my rating to a more fair two stars. I decided to replace my old cd as some tracks had always seemed to jump so I was quite disappointed to find the new does the same so perhaps it is a mastering fault when the it was transferred from vinyl.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. I don't give many five-star reviews, but Vigilante gets one because it's proof that there was good music being made even in the Thatcherite taste desert that was Britain in 1986.

There's truly not a bad track here, and different ones emerge as favourites each time I play it - currently it's Midnight, for its risky but perfectly judged saxophone climax, and Holy Rider, for that boomy, epic soundscape that prefigures what the Killers created in Sam's Town. Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music.
