|GARY MOORE - After The War [Japan SHM-CD remastered] (2016)|
Universal Music Japan is reissuing this year 9 rock masterpieces from GARY MOORE featuring cardboard sleeve cover artwork, the high-fidelity SHM-CD format and the latest remastered sound - plus bonus tracks.
"After The War" - perhaps Moore's best produced album ever - is one of my favorites, and as it was requested in one comment, this fresh
SHM-CD release is the perfect excuse to be presented on these pages.
"After The War" was the last hard rock album from Gary Moore before he
turned a heavy-blues performer. And what a great way to say goodbye to
the genre he embraced all over the '80s.
This was a return to a harder sound - yet with a glossy production - and
'real drums' after his previous more commercial, melodic hard rock
oriented album Wild Frontier (another personal fav to be featured here
Oh yeah, we have terrific drummers here with god Cozy Powell handling
the most, but also Simon Phillips (Toto), Charlie Morgan and Brian
Downey (Thin Lizzy). The rest of personnel is stellar too: Bob Daisley
(Ozzy, Uriah Heep) on bass, Neil Carter (UFO) on keyboards, Laurence
Cottle, Chris Thompson, etc.
After the short instrumental 'Dunluce', the title track rocks with power
and melody. Cuts like 'Speak for Yourself' and 'Running From The Storm'
are true hard rockers recalling Moore's early solo works, while the
Cozy Powell-propelled songs 'This Thing Called Love' and 'Living On
Dreams' have a particular swagger that just puts a smile on your face
that no drum machine ever could.
Ozzy Osbourne makes a guest appearance on lead vocals in the tongue and
cheek track 'Led Clones' which takes a pot shot at bands like Kingdom
Come and Great White, who, while having platinum albums at the time,
were obviously borrowing their entire sound and image from Led Zeppelin.
(Ozzy also does some background vocals on 'Speak for Yourself').
There are some hints of what was to come as well with the bluesy 'The
Messiah Will Come Again', which heralds Moore's new birth as a blues
Gary once again pays tribute to his childhood friend and musical
brother, Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott in the emotional 'Blood of
Emeralds'. Its feeling recalls the celtic fugue of Lizzy's song Black
Rose and closes this particular chapter of Gary's career in euphoric
style. Best of all is a track not included on the original vinyl release
but subsequently added to CD versions.
This remastered version features various bonus tracks, including an incendiary version of 'Wild Frontier' live.
"After The War" is a killer hard rock record by Gary Moore, his last in this style, and one of his best.
This Japanese remastered version on SHM-CD sound million bucks, and it's pretty affordable.
