4.0 out of 5 stars Gaelic rock-out from Lizzy sideman on home turf June 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
I never did buy Gary Moore's reinvention of himself - canny though it was - as a bluesman: he was always a hard rocker of that most fabulous seventies kind: big boots, tight jeans, mullet, foot to floor style of playing.
Here we find him in pretty much his last incarnation on the wild frontier before crossing the great divide into sell-out land, where history records he would go on to pretend he *still* had the blues, despite scant evidence of ever having had them in the first place.
On his way to the Wild Frontier, Gary Moore found himself at a cross roads: certainly, Heavy Rock wasn't just for hard men on motorbikes anymore - Bon Jovi had seen to that - but nor was it necessarily for a solely white audience either: Moore and his producer were clearly cognisant of the change ushered in by Aerosmith's collaboration with Run DMC on "Walk this Way" - alas all it culminated in during this session was a fairly lame rap remix of his excellent Easybeats cover, "Friday On My Mind". I suspect the remix hasn't made it onto the CD. No great loss.
In other ways Moore was returning to his Irish roots - there is a definite Gaelic feel to the cover of Big Country's "Over the Hills and Far Away", the title track, and "The Loner", the last of which is an instrumental for the late Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy. Alas, it comes nowhere near the outstanding "Parisienne Walkways" which Moore recorded with Lynott before Lynott's death, but which you won't find on this album.
In any case I think this return to the roots was a good thing - certainly much more bona fide than the blues "renaissance" he would subsequently experience - and it sets this record apart from most of the others that were coming out at the time.
Wild Frontier has elegant cover art, too - or at least would have but for the prominence of Gary's ugly scowling mug and his decidedly unconvincing balled fist.
In any case well worth a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Moore Jan. 25 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've owned copies of this album in three format: LP, cassette tape and CD. This is one of the few 80's recordings that sounds as fresh today as it did back in the days. "The Loner" still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. "Over The Hills..." and "Wild Frontier" are notable in that they don't feature blistering guitar solos, yet they still rank among the best Moore compositions ever. In fact, this "Wild Frontier" is significant because it is NOT a "guitar" album - no flash, no gratuituous solos - but rather a collection of great songs written and performed by perhaps the most underrated rock guitarist in modern times. To me, Moore's recent blues tangent has grown old fast, but his 80's recordings are timeless. Also recommended: "Corridors of Power" and "G-Force."

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Guitar Playing Jan. 22 2000
By Mike S
Format:Audio CD
Wow! I love this album, it really rocks with great feeling and melody. Gary's guitar rythyms and solos prove he is one the best guitarist around. I love The Loner which is an emotional instrumental with smoking solos. Thunder Rising is a rock masterpiece. There isn't a bad song on this CD. The cover version of Friday On My Mind is great. What an album!

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD March 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
Band line-up in this one: Gary Moore- guitar & vocals / Neil Carter - keyboards / Bob Daisley - bass. Produced by Peter Collins. The drums are made entirely by electronic devices. It's a great record, with meaningfull lyrics, great choruses, great solos. All the tunes are real cool. Gary is at top form here.
