Review by Tarcisio Moura
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I was surprised to see Iron Butterfly on PA and I could not resist to write abou this album. It was a fine 70īs hard rock sample, with some prog influences (most of them brought up by the excellent new keyboards man Bill Demartinez). Coming after the disappointing Scorching Beauty, this CD was a big, big improvement. The title track is a classic: great riffs, very well played keyboards (hear the mellotron-flute in the middle), gutsy guitar solo in the end and Erik Braunnīs voice is perfect. I always loved this song.

The remaining tracks are not that great, but the CD is very good and the only real weak track is Free (fortunatly a short one). Bill DeMartinez fine work wiht his vast array of keyboards is one responsible to turn even the simplest song into a minor symphony, sometimes just for a brief moment, but thatīs the beauty of it. He never goes over the top and all band members are in great shape here, a real team work. It is only a pity it was the last time I heard from them. Sun And Steel showed they could start all over again. Certainly they had the talent to do so.

If youīre into 70īs classic hard rock with progressive overtones you should give this album a try. 3,5 stars.

3 stars This last album from Iron Butterfly is actually better than what could have been expected. Ron Bushy (the only surviving founding member) and Erik Braun (an IB veteran) are the only ones from the heydays of the band to be featured on this album; while Phil Kramer already played on their weak Scorching Beauty released a year prior to this Sun & Steal.

The title and opening song is particularly well crafted: excellent vocals, fine melody with some superb instrumentation. Sun & Steal is one of their true prog track in all their career. A highlight!

This album as a whole though is more of a hard-rocking affair; something typical for the date of release. Some strong and powerful tracks (Lightnin) combined with some syrupy rock ballads like hard-rocking bands were keen to write (Beyond The Milky Way, Watch The World Going By).

A certain New York Dolls flavour is also noticeable during the rock'n'roll Free or Get It Out. But there will still be a heavy rock one for the nostalgic old fans (Scion).

The influence of the new keyboard player (Bill De Martinez) is clearly marked on the very good I'm Right, I'm Wrong: after a symphonic opening, he will develop a fine atmospheric play to get along with this traditional rock number. It is the second highlight from this enjoyable album.

The closing number is another fine song from this offering. A very performing rock ballad which holds a great guitar furry in the middle part. It is bizarrely called Scorching Beauty (title of their previous album).

In all, this is an enjoyable rock album. Three stars.

Now people generally give this album a bad rap, but I believe that there is a wonderfully surprising amount of progressive rock on this album. Unfortunately the pr ... (read more)
