Sorry Koogles but I disagree. I think it is an excellent album and a worthy follow up
to Heaven Forbid. I have followed them since Spectres was released. Went back to the ealier stuff then bought every album from Mirrors onwards. The only two I am dissapointed with are Imaginos and Club Ninja which I still like but they just never lived up to the promise. Club Ninja particularly has a really muddy sound which lets it down. Imaginos wasn't really a Blue Oyster Cult album anyway and using an outside singer to do lead vocals on some of it was strange to say the least.
As for the new one, AC/DC my arse, simple riff on "Good To Feel Hungry" ? Well if you can make an AC/DC comparison for simplicity how do you explain the funky
intro, the pulsating bass, the atmospheric keys, the great mid section solo with
the hammond followed by the wonderful guitar break, then the unexpected racy part with another great solo and excellent double bass drum work before going back to the slower theme ?. I don't hear AC/DC doing anything like this. I love AC/DC too but I just don't get the comparison. Maybe it's me, maybe I'm a bit
thick and don't know enough about music to comment.
70's boogie rock you say, Oh for heavens sake. 70's boogie rock implies the like s of Status Quo, Foghat and er oh AC/DC & Rose Tattoo. I must have a problem with my ears or my hifi as I don't notice any of this sort of thing when I hear it.
Paul Rogers & Buck Dharma comparison ? Hmm now that is wierd.
Take it easy
