The Michael Schenker Group The Michael Schenker Group LP (Picture Disc)
Debut Album On Picture Disc Vinyl LP!
Featuring The Iconic Single "Armed And Ready"!
The Michael Schenker Group is a rock back formed in 1979 by former UFO and
Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker. Their music is described as mostly melodic
hard rock with progressive undertones. Michael Schenker is known for his
unorthodox approach to lead guitar, as well as his half-black, half-white Gibson
Flying V guitar.
The debut album The Michael Schenker Group was originally released in 1980 and
reached #8 on the UK albums chart. Now reissued on the newly independent
Chrysalis Records, the LP includes the iconic single "Armed And Ready", which is
featured in Guitar Hero: Metallica.
"Highlights like 'Looking Out from Nowhere' and 'Lost Horizons' are laced
with the pomp and bombast typical of the era, and storming opener 'Armed and
Ready' is arguably Schenker's finest solo track. Vocalist Gary Barden wisely
stays out of the way, his understated style (not unlike that of UFO singer Phil
Mogg) placing all emphasis where it is intended: Schenker's stunning axe work.
In spite of its random quirks, the general consensus among fans holds that this
remains the MSG's best work." - Eduardo Rivadavia, allmusic.com
