About this deal

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. Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares? 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. 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. 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. 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.

I initially gave only one star to this album, but I have now upgraded my rating to a more fair two stars.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. Capitalising on the success of On a Storyteller's Night, Magnum changed to a more commercial direction with Vigilante. The album was produced by Roger Taylor of Queen and the sound of the album is very much of its time. Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest. I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not.

It has been one of my favourite Magnum albums since it was released and shows them at their brilliant best. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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. Eventually got round to properly replacing my very battered 2nd hand CD of this album with a shiny new one. While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic.Please consider supporting us by giving monthly PayPal donations and help keep PA fast-loading and ad-free forever.
