Review by erik neuteboom
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars In 1970 guitarist and vocalist John DuCann joined Atomic Rooster and he immediately went on tour with the band. When bass player Graham left the band keyboardist Crane refused to replace him and started playing bass lines on the lower part of Hammond organ. To compensate the fact that he couldn't use his left hand to press down chords on the lower manual he created a 'burning' style of playing, often in furious interplay with DuCann. When Carl Palmer left Atomic Rooster to join Keith Emerson and Greg Lake left for supergroup ELP, Rick Parnell shortly replaced him. John and Vincent were not satisfied about his skills and decided to replace him by Paul Hammond, an extremely good drummer from a local band called Farm. The recordings from this CD (with two bonustracks) are from 1980 featuring the line-up John Du Cann (guitar and vocals), Vincent Crane (Hammond C3 organ) and Preston Heyman (drums and percussion) who has worked with Kate Bush, nowadays a familiar face on Prog Archives!

On this album the trio started to develop their harder- edged progressive music with swirling Hammond B3 organ and fiery guitarplay. The interplay between John's guitar and Vince organ is hot and often furious. In fact this powerful sound was very influential, many metal- acts from The Eighties pointed at Atomic Rooster as their main source. The ten songs sound rather straightforward but very energetic and propulsive with elements from Deep Purple (organ and guitar), Led Zeppelin (guitar riffs), Argent (organ), Alice Cooper (vocals) and The Stranglers (vocals and organ). To me Atomic Rooster sounds as an exciting heavy progressive rockband. By the way, in '89 it was all over for Atomic Rooster because of Crane's tragical death, he commited suicide

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars One never knows what to expect with some reunion album. Is it for the worse or for the best?

I am usually quite sceptical about such works, and I really wondered what would come up out of this album. The gang of Crane/Du Cann is in place again, but what would they achieve?

Actually, the period which was my fave from AR, was their early days (their first two/three albums). Their heavy keyboards were a real enchantment and I never could get into their more bluesy/jazzy music afterwards.

So, this Atomic Rooster 80 is a good return to a more rocking music. The heavy beats are fortunately back. Of course, this is no masterpiece of an album, but when you listen to the opening track, you can't honestly say that it is not very Purple oriented (Highway Star). As soon as you have listened to this track, you think: the band is well on track. And you are right. They will repeat this with Watch Out which is another highlight.

This is an excellent rock album. Of course, you have to remember that we were in 1980 while this album was recorded. And obviously, the new wave had its mark on the music (Where's The Show). It is a very good and hopping number; well in the tradition of the time (even if maybe two years late). Another highlight after They Took Control Of You.

Some songs are weaker like In The Shadows(which is rather Stranglers oriented) but if you are open minded, a song as Do You Know Who's Looking For You which is not far from the punkish mood is really appealing. Great beat (I did say punkish, right) and fun.

I am very pleased to listen to this reunion album. No poor tracks, good rocking music and some new beats: this is a good mix IMHHO. Seven out of ten, really.
