Prog Reviewer
3 stars A return to the twisted blues of pre-Trout Mask albums, The Spotlight Kid is an album of consolidation and taking stock for Beefheart rather than one in which he ploughs forward into new territory - though we're still leaning well towards the avant-garde side of the Mirror Man/Safe as Milk sound. The musical backing from the Magic Band seems a bit tired (and by all accounts, they were thoroughly fed up by this point), but Beefheart's vocal delivery and eccentric compositions remain diverting. It's not a vital part of the Beefheart discography, but it's certainly worth a listen if you're already a Beefheart devotee.
Warthur | 3/5 |
