MSG Back catalogue


the first 3 lps are pretty well known and liked, from Built to destroy on quality dropped most would agree.

I quite like BTD, downloaded this and Perfect timing for scrutiny, listened to latter which was pretty forgettable, aside from Love is not a game, Time and Gimmme your love.

any opinions?

Really liked the first three (including Budokan as the third) and like the fourth but from Built to Destroy onward, things get a little dodgy up until the Doogie albums. One thing is for sure though, Michael is currently playing better than he has since Budokan, maybe even since UFO.

True, after Built to destroy is a bit up and down. The are a few gems to be found, though, like the song Save yourself which to me is an absolute highlight. A true classic is also Walk on water, back in Ufo in 1995. More recently, I particulary enjoyed Bridge the gap, with Temple of rock.

Re: MSG Back catalogue


walk on water is one of the best LPs in his career for me, but as an MSG thread I wondered what folk made of written in the sand and midst of beauty, both of which appears to get good write ups

Minor episodes in his discogrpahy, to me but I like both those titles, especially In the midst of beauty cause it has Neil Murray, Simon Phillips and Don Airey. Basically, I just love the sound of him playing. I don't think they have particulary strong songs.

I read somewhere that he was considered for Purple, but not sure when. Anyone know any more?

He said this several times in interviews and, according to him, he was approached in 1994. I never found evidence of this from the Purple camp, though. He's not always the most lucid guy but Roger, at least, is a fan for sure. I don't think he was ever really considered.
