4 stars "War child" is the album that was released between 1972's "Thick as a brick" and 1975's "Mistrel in the Gallery". The first song, "Warchild" starts with some annoying sound effects that soon ends as some piano & sax comes in. The rhytm is a bit like Disco in the refrain, which makes it a bit danceable. Next up, "Queen and The Country" starts with accordion and violin. It sound very folky, and a bit catchy. "Laides" is an acoustic song with guitar and violin. The drums don't come in until the end, when it fades out. "Back Door Angels" is the best song of this album, it sounds much like their "Stand Up" album with it's flute-rock. "Sealion", "Bungle in The Jungle" and "Warchild Waltz" are the 3 last good songs, as the rest just feels like fillers. The 6 bonus track on the remaster is just even more fillers, and i skip them. I like this album alot, since it has amazing moments, but it also have ALOT of fillers, which is sad for such a interesting album. 4/5 still
Abstrakt | 4/5 |
