Let's face it, if you are looking at reviews of an Yngwie album, you know who he is, and you either love him or hate him.
I'll try and be objective about this: This is the best album Yngwie has made since "Marching Out". From the first track through the remaining 17, this album just rocks! Great riffing, fantastic production, incredible vocals, and of course, that Yngwie tone, loaded with counterpoint and the usual harmonic-minor-diminished licks.
The bottom line: if you like Yngwie, you'll LOVE this album. If you don't like Yngwie, you might be pleasantly surprised.

UTF is a must have for 2005! I roll the car windows down and Play Loud everyday. It has a monster load of energy which is very refreshing. Let's face it, rock radio sucks so bad with stagnant Nickelback clones. THE BOGEYMAN, REVOLUTION and CRACKING THE WHIP would kick a** on rock radio. Production complaints?? Get a life! The production is just fine. Warning: BEAUTY AND A BEAST may make you want to lead foot!
