I hear nothing but "classic rock" sounds on the new BOC. I am also disappointed by it. Embarrassing lyrics ("I Just Like to Be Bad") and meatless chorusses ("Showtime") make for what I believe a very desperate effort from a band that is capable of much, much more. When I heard the title "Curse of the Hidden Mirror", I thought "Great! They're recapturing the Imaginos vibe." Sadly, this is no Imaginos. "Curse" sounds mired in '70s boogie rock at times and Andrew's review accurately diagnoses that. The AC/DC comparison? Well, when your riffing is as simplistic as the one in "Good to Feel Hungry", then yes, you will be compared to AC/DC! Bad Company? To compare Buck Dharma's vocals to Paul Rodgers is not a wholly unconvincing argument.

"Curse" is to BOC what "Brave New World" was to Styx. Strangely enough, both were released on CMC International.

If you want to hear BOC at their best, check out their first album, "Fire of Unknown Origin", "Imaginos", "Agents of Fortune" or "Extraterrestrial Live"...
