About this deal

Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one. The approach adopted here was a lot more commercial and the end result is a more streamlined Magnum sound. Vigilante" e' quel disco che ti fa assaporare il classico Rock fatto di chitarre possenti ma mielosee da atmosferiche tastiere che rendono tutto magico.

While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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. 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.I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not. 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. While the band had wanted Rodney Matthews to paint the artwork, the record company chose a different cover against the band's wishes. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish.

Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description.

The feel of the album is entirely different from On A Storyteller's Night; lighter, streamlined, as I said, but not without substance. 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. 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.

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

It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best. Three singles were released to promote the album, "Lonely Night", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "When the World Comes Down".Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares? Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest.
