The first studio recording after the departure of guitarist Michael Schenker, No Place to Run, with its midtempo guitar rock, bore much more of a resemblance to '70s rockers like Bad Company than the coming NWOBHM. Fellow Brits like Def Leppard were cultivating a similar but much more exciting brand of simple, angular hard rock built for the millions of AC/DC-loving Americans, while UFO seemed to be chasing their stylistic tail. Tracks like "This Fire Burns Tonight" call to mind Jackson Brown-styled adult rock. [The 2009 edition included bonus tracks.] ~ Vincent Jeffries
Record Collector (magazine) (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Joining mainstays Phil Mogg and Pete Way were guitarist Paul Chapman, pianist Paul Raymond and drummer Andy Parker. It was a very good album with some fiery guitar, bolstered by production from George Martin."
