4 stars Cultosaurus Erectus was a big return to form for BOC, coming after three increasingly mixed albums where the band seemed intent on finding hit singles. The problem with Cultosaurus is it is rather lop- sided. The first four tracks (side A) are outstanding. Black Blade is one their career highlights, Monsters surprises and delights, Divine Wind is unnervingly relentless, while Deadline is a delightful tune with a lovely Buck Dharma solo. The remaining songs are weaker. The Marshall Plan is fun, Unknown Tongue is nicely twisted, Fallen Angel is decent though not their most memorable, Lips quite poor, while 'Hungry Boys' is just awful. 5 stars for the first half, 2.5 for the second half.
