  • Built to Destroy was not much different than MSG's previous effort, Assault Attack, except that Gary Barden replaced Graham Bonnet on lead vocals. Michael Schenker's steady musicianship usually lifted his sometimes mediocre solo efforts into at least the listenable range. But other than "Rock My Nights Away" and the instrumental "Nemo," most of the songs on this album sound like standard '80s fare: upbeat, keyboard-laced pop-metal songs with inspirationally banal lyrics that would fit nicely on a movie soundtrack. The U.K. version on BGO Records and the U.S. one on Chrysalis are supposed to have alternate mixes, but the difference is imperceptible. The easier to find American release has a shuffled song order. Built to Destroy, while average, was still much better than UFO albums from the same period, proving that Schenker was really the guiding force behind his former band. Nonetheless, this release is for fans of the genre or Schenker completists only. ~ Brian Downing
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Rock My Nights Away' kicks off in typically upbeat fashion, 'I'm Gonna Make You Mine' is a rousing singalong, and 'Systems Failing' an urgent Cold War rocker."
