3 stars My People Were Fair and Had Sky in Their Hair ? 1968

10 ? Best Song: Embrace goatboy!

I probably won't like it, indeed. So sayeth my emotive stance. Hey. This is my reviews page for Marc Bolan, Tyrannosaurus Rex, T.Rex, and Johnny Rotten. Johnny Rotten's my cohost. See, here he is: Bloody catholics!

See that? He's antiestablishment, so vote me in as best whatever the polls are or you'll never get one of those woefully funny snippets again. My People is an acoustic folk hippie album full of psychedelic atmospheres and Marc's singing is reminiscent of a bleating mystic mountain goat. I dig that singing style. It really adds to the diverse vocal overdubbing in the swift and bopping 'Child Star'. This is one of those later-era 1960's albums that valued psychic experimentation over musical themes, which is okay. I didn't expect an album named 'My People were fair and had sky in their hair but now they're content to wear stars on their brow'. Isn't that the longest album title in the history of man? 'Chateau in Virginia Waters' is a nice, flowing melodic one-keyer. By that I mean it doesn't exactly go anywhere from the starting point. Me, I prefer progress in my music. As difficult as the album is to listen to when coming from the man's 1970's output, it's equally as easy to listen to it due to how quietly and calmly inoffensive it happens to be. 'My Inca Love', while being right repetitive, is the one track with a swift and noticeable swell in it. My issue with it is how the songs all sound strikingly similar, and have the same basic progression (not really any). This is second rate spaced-out folk, but it's all a candycanes ride when you take it on a sunny afternoon. Embrace the Goatboy at your own discretion.
