Description

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. Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. 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. While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic. Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one.

Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. 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.Three singles were released to promote the album, "Lonely Night", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "When the World Comes Down". 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. 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! Capitalising on the success of On a Storyteller's Night, Magnum changed to a more commercial direction with Vigilante.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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.The album was produced by Roger Taylor of Queen and the sound of the album is very much of its time. I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. 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.

While the band had wanted Rodney Matthews to paint the artwork, the record company chose a different cover against the band's wishes.I initially gave only one star to this album, but I have now upgraded my rating to a more fair two stars. Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description).

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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. The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. 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.Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music.
