Description

the first LP on Status Records, of this legendary band that was the continuation of Diamond Head. The drumming is also excellent and comes courtesy of Rich Battersby, that is now beating the skins for the Wildhearts. Essential!
‘World Service’, produced by METALLICAs live sound engineeer ‘Big ‘ Mick Hughes, finally saw a release through Status Records in 1991. Although the bulk of the guitars on the record had been fully recorded with Brian Tatler, the solos were re-recorded by Rob James. Oddly Tatlers work remains unaccredited. The album also featured vocalist Paul Bridgewater (ex SLOWBURNER), who later took time out to record an unreleased album with TAPANZEE prior to rejoining RADIO MOSCOW for the album ‘Get A New Life’.

Radio Moscow in some parts play a brand of ballsy sounding rock with a Southern and bluesy edge to it, like a combination of Bad Company and Tangier for instance. In other parts they take on a slight atmospheric edge a la Diamond Head.

Gave this album a proper listening after so many years that I got hold of it and my mind completely changed …great album and a recommendable one!!!!…it combines Melodic Rock with AOR in a very pleasant way…my faves are “Blind Mans Eyes”, “Standing”, “Message For You”, “The Flame”, “Thousand Kisses”(great groove!!!),”Shes Got It Bad”(rocks good) & “Heart It In The Wind”(nice mid tempo)…basically the whole release!!! 90/100

Very Good Hard Rock/AOR album, Buenisima placa de esta banda a millas de distancia de su siguiente trabajo “Get A New Life”, aca encontramos desde cortes Hard Rock a AOR pero mayormente cortes cruzados entre ambos estilos  Standing, The Flame(estos 2 son ESPECTACULARES el tipo de cortes que personalmente busco), Ring on Your Finger, Message for You  4 Great AOR songs este disco es altamente recomendado, muy en la onda Bad Company y Tangier muy cierto 8.5/10
