    very good album, one of theirs which i own. great cover too.
    i've always been amazed that i've never seen phil mogg's name included in one of those 'best singer' lists. never mentioned. its the usual suspects only, gillan, plant, freddie.

    Agreed!! Phil should make a few vocalist best of lists. Never thought about it but it's like I never see him.

    Missed Khor's review when he posted it...:bonk:

    Whenever I see "Obsession" I harken back decades when I asked a friend to make a cassette copy of "Strangers in the Night" for me. Simple enough request I thought, instead he recorded Obsession. I have to say I was very disappointed, I mean it was a good album but pales beside "Strangers..." at least in my books.

    I'd have to go back and listen to their studio albums again before making a definitive choice, but "Lights Out" has always been my personal favorite.

    And I agree with BillyP and MP, Phil Mogg never gets the recognition he warrants, one of the best of his era easily.:cheers2

    My dad had it on vinyl when it first came out and as he played it often and loud, it got kind of stuck in my head, excellent album :grinthumb

    One of my favourite bands of all time. I'd rank this album 7 Out Of 10
