Prog Reviewer
2 stars Like its predecessor, Cultosaurus Erectus, Fire of Unknown Origin retains a little of the dark, murky energy which made the band's early albums (up to Secret Treaties) so compelling. However, the band's experiments with their style here are somewhat less successful than on the preceding albums. The mid-paced Veteran of the Psychic Wars plod along dully and wears out its welcome quickly, the opening title track incorporates an inept and irritating disco beat. Still, Burning For You and Joan Crawford are catchy enough tracks. Like it's predecessor, I wouldn't say it's a return to form, but it's at least a bit more interesting than the dull pop-metal of Spectures.
Warthur | 2/5 |
