‘A Conspiracy Of Stars’, the follow up to 2012’s hugely acclaimed ‘Seven Deadly’ album, (which charted at number 1 in the UK rock chart, 63 in the national album chart and 9 in the UK Indie chart), is an even more accomplished body of work than its predecessor.

Classic Rock Magazine’s Geoff Barton awarded ‘Seven Deadly’ 8/10 in his lead review in the February 2012 issue, stating that “UFO’s first studio album since 2009’s ‘The Visitor’ is bursting with creativity and athleticism…It’s positively febrile. Mogg, in particular, is at the top of his game. He carries the record with his passion. His singing has all the vim and vigour it had on ‘Strangers In The Night’, their legendary 1979 live album; maybe even more.  His lyrics remain as erudite and evocative as anything Mellencamp, say, has ever written. ‘Seven Deadly’ begins in frantic fashion before settling into a groove that’s powerful and reflective, complex and involving. ‘Mojo Town’, the third track, is a gigantic jangling blues monster that brings guitarist Vinnie Moore to the fore; you won’t believe this so-called ‘technical musician’ can play so raw. ‘Burn Your House Down’ is packed full of loping menace; ‘Angel Station’ builds from a gentle balled into something sprawling and magnificent, complete with the added frisson of female backing vocals…In an album of numerous high spots, and tons of twists and turns, the best is left to last. ‘Waving Goodbye’, enhanced by Tommy Newton’s massive production job, is as mournful as it is monumental.”

UFO, an unstoppable act who are clearly firing fully on all 4 cylinders, state that “A Conspiracy Of Stars is another successful combination of those typical UFO elements with fresh, contemporary ideas. We’re confident that not only our longstanding supporters will get their money’s worth, but that younger rock fans will also enjoy the album. We look forward to seeing you on tour!”
