Built to Destroy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Brian Downing
Built to Destroy was not much different than MSG's previous effort, Assault Attack, except that Gary Barden replaced Graham Bonnet on lead vocals. Michael Schenker's steady musicianship usually lifted his sometimes mediocre solo efforts into at least the listenable range.

Nonetheless, this release is for fans of the genre or Schenker completists only.
