About this deal

Only nine tracks but very much quality rather than quantity I found this album utterly absorbing from start to finish. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The album was produced by Roger Taylor of Queen and the sound of the album is very much of its time. While the band had wanted Rodney Matthews to paint the artwork, the record company chose a different cover against the band's wishes. 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.

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. 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.

Queen is one of my all-time favourite bands, and I'm sure that fans of 80's Queen will like this music. 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.

Auf diesem Album geht es etwas rockiger zu, aber 2 melodiöse Nummern setzen sich auf Anhieb im Ohr fest. Gracenote bizarrely categorizes this as 'Metal' (whereas even AC/DC and Led Zeppelin are tagged 'Rock') but who cares?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. Three singles were released to promote the album, "Lonely Night", "Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)" and "When the World Comes Down". Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description.

From the breathy, synthy opening of Lonely Night to the ecstatic, drum-clattering coda of Back Street Kid, these are just nine top-notch songs given the best glossy, mid-80s production values by the skilled hand of Roger Taylor. I've read quite a few reviews who depend their rating whether the album (or artist) is prog and rate it down if not.The weakest tracks are the first three and the last, but the ones in the middle are all good ones; Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping), Red On The Highway, Holy Rider, and When The World Comes Down are actually not bad at all! While I have always liked the title track, I initially dismissed the rest of the album as too poppy and simplistic.
