This two-pack of British heavy metal legends is a testament to the enduring force of hard-driving riffs and shout-along choruses. The guitar greatness of Michael Schenker may be long gone from the current UFO lineup, but the longtime core of Phil Mogg, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond remains a compelling force on modern renditions of hard-rock classics such as “Lights Out” and “Doctor Doctor.” Saxon were contemporaries of other early-’80s British metal acts like Iron Maiden and Motörhead, with metallic hits of the era like “Motorcycle Man” and “Princess of the Night.” Newer works find both bands not straying too far from the formulas that gave them hits years ago, but with sounds as timeless as these, reliability is better than radical experimentation.
