From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Assimilating an enciclopedic stuff of musical genre (rock and roll, swing, beat, blues-rock, psichedelia, hard rock, sud boogie, honky-tonk), the Blue Oyster Cult grow up in the decadent circles of New York (they are the creature of the journalist Sandy Pearlman, they inventor, producer and composer), they become the leader of the heavy metal of the years ' 70.

Secret Treaties (apr 1974) picks the fruits of the maturation: dramatized theirs make more macabre , expanding and slowing down the sound in a fluid wrapped guitarristic boogie in atmospheres noir (Career Of Evil writed by Patti Smith, Subhuman) two masterpices that follow are between concern us of the rock all: "Flaming Telephants" all are 5 minuteren of commotion where the black ropes (the extraearthling) and white women (the land commotion), typical of the Blue Oyster Cult, come capacities to the maximum of their tones, between shadows and lights; "Astronomy" is to the previous one like the epic to the lyric one; without doubt the better song of the Blue Oyster Cult. Formally it would have to be dancing hard-rock, but it it is like a splendid sculpture would have materially to be a marble piece.

In the complex a beautiful album, an optimal soundtrack.

Listen to it
