3 stars Magnum's first album in the'90's. Well this album for my tasre is much better than Vigilante and on the same level with previous one Wings of heaven.Indeed Goodnight LA from 1990 is more an hard rock/AOR album but that doesn't mean is bad, contrary i find it very enjoyble with some pieces stand as among the best Magnum release like:Only A Memory,What Kind Of Love Is This (the strong voice of Bob Catley is shown here on the highest calibre), No Way Out and Born to be a king, the rest are so so, but not bad. If you have some hard rock background in music you might give this band a chance and specially this album, quite less enjoyble than predecesors with the exception Vigilante, but nevertheless a good one. The musicians are still in top form, even the Magnum music is no more something to talk about, even the music is good, some of the fans and critcs turn in the early '90's to a new kind of music who appear to be the main road to many bads - alternative and grounge music, who slap in the face some really good bands who carrys on their music and playing now in the shadow of this so called rock music .Anyway Magnum manage to survive in this jungle and release respectable albums. Finally a pleasent album, but only for those who can listen to other music than the traditional prog music. 3 stars and among their best.
