4 stars The Red and the Black! Is my color scheme. After their first effort, which showed the potential of BOC, but which also had too much uninspired filler, Tyranny and Mutation sets the standard for where this talented band was heading. Riffs...yep, got em. Great instrumental skill...yep. Awesome, weird lyrics...absotively! Top moments for myself are "OD'd On Life Itself", "Wings Wetted Down", "Baby Ice Dog", and "Quicklime Girl". All are outstanding. COmplaints...maybe the sound is a bit dated and a few compositions where out their welcome halfway through, but it is still in the top 5 BOC albums. I rank it with Spectres and Imaginos in my personal taste book. This is original Heavy-Prog from the old school. 4 stars.
