Gary Moore Run for cover to After the war period
What do you Gary Dino period guys think of his output 85-89? For me Run for cover was his last decent rock album, it’s not perfect but with Hughes’ contributions in some ways improved upon Victims for me, lifting the likes of Reach for the sky beyond what Gary himself could have done vocally. After this one I became less enthusiastic, Wild frontier I found dull apart from the title track and the loner. Take a little time? What a terrible opening track after the might of previous openers: DTMFAL, VOF and RFC itself.
After the war I didn’t even bother with at the time, it’s not bad actually, though major re-tread on most of the tracks, the title cut in particular. I can see why he was getting bored with rock, I guess I’d cite Dunluce and The Messiah will come again as my favourites on the one.
