3 stars This debut album by Blue Oyster Cult came to my ears quite late even though the local music magazine Aktuil who was very influential to the youths in the 70s made a lot of articles about this. This is the kind of band that you might compare with the like of Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple or Uriah Heep .. but I think this kind of music is comparable to bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd even though bothe bands are different.

This debut deals significantly with hard rock music characterized by heavy gutar riffs and guitar melody. The music sometimes reminds me to Lynyrd Skynyrd and sometimes to Frank Marino's Mahogany Rush. The only thing is that BOC music is a bit ambient in nuance. I think this debut album is the best from their albums overall because after this they never be able to create at the same quality as this one. Transmaniacon MC starts heavy and according to my personal taste this is the best song from the album. Then Came the Last Days of May is also a nice track, adrenalin exploder with ballad touch. These two tracks represent good songs from the album, really. Screams and She's As Beautiful As a Foot are recommended also. Obviously from the perspective of the music style you might not consider heavily on this band and or album. But, I think, the music of BOC is worth exploring evn though none of the album really anchored in me. Keep on proggin' ..!
