About this deal

Capitalising on the success of On a Storyteller's Night, Magnum changed to a more commercial direction with Vigilante. The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound. From the breathy, synthy opening of Lonely Night to the ecstatic, drum-clattering coda of Back Street Kid, these are just nine top-notch songs given the best glossy, mid-80s production values by the skilled hand of Roger Taylor.

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. peut-être un peu trop hard fm, mais néanmoins des titres comme Vigilante font de cet album un des meilleurs de Magnum mais pas un des plus typiques.

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.

Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest. Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares?It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best. Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music. 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. 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.

Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. 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.Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one. 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! I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). While the band had wanted Rodney Matthews to paint the artwork, the record company chose a different cover against the band's wishes.

Three singles were released to promote the album, "Lonely Night", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "When the World Comes Down". 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.
