AllMusic Review by

UFO guitarist extraordinaire Michael Schenker is back with his first all-instrumental effort. He teased listeners in his early UFO days with instrumentals like "Lipstick Traces" and "Arbory Hill." Now Schenker fans get a full platter. Gone are the trademark Schenker rapid fire chops, but the melodic chord structures are still intact. Backed by the legendary Aynsley Dunbar (ex-Journey member) on drums and Jaohn Onder on bass, Schenker has a very solid rhythm section to work with. Standout tracks are "Three Fish Dancing," "Aardvark in a VW Smoking a Cigar," and "Old Man With Sheep on Mars." This is not necessarily an all that imaginative adventure, but Schenker purists will enjoy the trip.
