    Last Sunday was parliamentary elections day.
    After 5 years the Socialist party regained power forming a majority government while the conservatives suffered a devastating loss blah, blah, blah.
    And although I’m not taking the matter lightly -nor do I abstain from voting-, I can’t help thinking (in an immature way if you like, I call it *humour*) this:
    Michael Schenker for President!
    Strike that out, I meant Prime Minister 😛

    Now seriously, I did vote for the blondie:
    it was for a “What’s the greatest guitar solo in history” poll.
    Tough choice, readers came up with hundreds of songs – and they were all damn good.
    I struggled and struggled and struggled trying to limit down a literally ENDLESS list until I made up my mind:
    “Save yourself”
    It has to be the most well-structured (Hard Rock/Heavy Metal) song ever written!
    Allow me to elaborate:
    It starts with a stunning solo. It continues with a brain-melting one. And when you think it’s over, it comes back to FINISH YOU OFF!
    By that time YOU’LL HAVE SPASMS and other UNCONTROLLABLE reactions.
    I rest my case.

    (almost) Equal in value:
    “Anytime”: Heart-breaking power ballad and most memorable song as far as the majority is concerned (…)
    “There has to be another way”: Short, yet very effective instrumental – typical Schenker stuff.
    As for the rest of the album, it has its moments; a few of the tracks are representative of the late 80s a.k.a. Hair Metal.
    I don’t think anyone would have minded if “I am your radio” had been left out…

    Last but not least, Robin McAuley does an excellent job.
    I never understood why most MSG fans consider Gary Barden a better singer.
    McAuley was, is and will be superior; oh, and in case I haven’t mentioned it, “In the midst of beauty” fell short of my expectations.

      Unfortunately, I have neither the Remaster nor any of the earlier editions :\
      [I’m referring to the actual CDs of course, other people’s rips DON’T count, that goes without saying]

    Thanks a million, I really want this.

    “I am your radio” is probably the best thing on it! McAuley is a minor footnote in the MSG story, he may have seemed a good choice as he sang well in Grand Prix, but didn’t write their stuff, he could never co-write a “Lost horizons”.
    Bardenʼs unbelievable sacking in ʼ81 or ʼ82 by management or Chrysalis all but ruined his and Schenkerʼs careers – the move to L.A. for “Save yourself” etc. was the death knell (let’s not mention the last 20 years).
