1982 was my first foray into the world of Gary Moore. I hadn't really listened to any of his Colosseum material. My only exposure to him was the Thin Lizzy album 'Black Rose', and his OTT rock fusion band G-Force. Both albums were rather 'killer' in my books, so it was a natural move toward his new solo career, and what a career that turned out to be. Signed to Virgin Records and produced by American Jeff Glixman (Kansas), 1982 would begin a creative period for the Irishman.

The Songs
In my opinion, there isn't a weak track on this platter. Tracks that are out and out rockers, plus a couple of exquisite ballads. All throughout, the incredible lead guitar work can be heard, and are inserted at the appropriate moments to lift the songs to a higher level. 'Don't Take Me For A Loser' is a fiery opener and is a good example when the solo section kicks in. 'Always Gonna Love You' is a spine-tingling ballad that still sounds great decades later. Gary entertains us with a cover-version of Free's classic 'Wishing Well', while the other killer ballad 'Falling In Love With You' demonstrates what a talented songwriter he was!

On Side two, 'End Of The World' is monstrous stuff. This to me is what heavy metal was all about in 1982! By contrast, the Moore Paice co-write 'Rockin' Every Night' is a short sprint. Still heavy as horses, the track doesn't even make 3 minutes on the clock! 'Cold Hearted' changes the soundscape yet again, a dense intensified rocker that sounds as if it has its origins in the Deep Purple and Whitesnake universes. The finale 'I Can't Wait Until Tomorrow' is a souful heavy rock/blues hybrid, something Moore would pursue with great passion in the years to come.

In Summary
As history would show, it would take Gary Moore much longer to crack the North American market, but in the UK and Europe, success was pretty much assured. All of his albums through the 80's are all worth landing on your plate. Refer to some other articles listed below. [word count 348]
