3 stars In their first studio album "First Base",the British band BABE RUTH presents a hard-bluesy prog sonority, but in my point of view in spite the album bring to the audience some great musical moments like in the track 3 "King Kong" , track 4 "Black Dog" and the track 5 "The Mexican" , where the band shows their great skill in terms of execution and composition... the other tracks that compound the album suffer a very common problem which affect other bands of same period, the tendency to use repetitive rhythms and almost none variations, a good example of this tendency is the last track "Joker" where the rhythmic section arrangement are very boring. Therefore, although I recognise the great capacity of the musicians ( like I said before), my rate is only 3 stars !!! However, I want stand out that this album figures in my collection !
