4 stars Babe Ruth was one of those bands that had a sound all there own. Original, unpredictable and HEAVY!! This band is burned into my memory forever with the tracks Jack'o'Lantern, A Fist FOD, and We People Who Are Darker than Blue. And a couple of others from other Babe Ruth Albums. But this album, their debut, was the one that heard a lot of play in my house in 1975, great period piece music.

Bands that were similar to Babe Ruth (but not in sound) were Budgie, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult. There is a common thread, if you think about the type of music these bands were releasing in the early and mid and late (OK all the 1970's). It is music that lacked categorizing because it didn't need it. Babe Ruth was almost metal when they wanted to be but never went all the way with it. That's what makes their music so cool. It feels like they could rip your throat out if they wanted to. They choose not to and yet still deliver...

I am rating this album as a four only because I think it deserves it. Because if I had never heard Babe Ruth it would have been missed...somehow.
