Singer Robin McAuley (previously with Grand Prix) joined MSG for the album ''Perfect timing'' (1987) and stayed with them until the 1991 album ''MSG''. Surprisingly Schenker changed the band name from Michael Schenker Group to McAuley Schenker Group, proving that McAuley had a strong saying in the band. The sound of the band moved to more melodic hard rock from the edgier approach of the first MSG albums and actually this way they managed to deliver their finest works. ''Save yourself'' (1989) and ''MSG'' are regarded as Schenker's highlights with MSG, especially among melodic hard rock fans. With ''MSG'' they even managed to score their first hit single ''Nightmare'', a great accoustic ballad with the distinctive raw but sentimental vocals of McAuley and Schenker's wonderful melodic phrasing on both accoustic and (a little) electric guitar.
