3 stars For me "Hoodoo Man" is slightly over-rated. Yes, it contains the notorius hard-prog (to cite Hugues!) anthem "Gamma Ray" and powerful opener "Buy". But the remaining songs are not passing the test of the time. "Suicide" shows that the band obviously listened a lot of THE DOORS, since they copied the bass chord from "Light My Fire" (which they already had covered on their debut). "Klaustoss" is an obvious filler with some unnecessary folk-dance themes. Not bad album by any means, but overall so-so. Of course, "Gamma Ray" is worth getting.
