"The second I put on this cd I knew what I was going to get , but even so I was suprised how sexy and catchy the songs are . "King's Horsemen" makes you feel like you are sitting there singing with them when it was recorded . cat black wizards hat ,brings about the sexiness of Desire(come and get it) . In all , it is a must have plain and simple."

"I was quite surprised at how average this album is. It's not a very spirited or distinct effort from one of the more flamboyant and cutting edge singer/songwriters of this period (80s-90s), Michael Aston. Other than UNDER YOUR SPELL and VENUS IN RAGS, which hint at a more progressive style and sound a la LOVE LIES BLEEDING, the other songs are more reminiscent of say a band like RATT. KING'S HORSES is listenable but not outstanding by any means. CAT BLACK WIZARD'S HAT co-written by the "glam twins" is really the low point of the album for me. A good idea to emulate Marc Bolan and the T. Rex sound, but to basically rip lyrics from his songs and put them in your own is lazy and hackish. If done right it would have been a keeper, but as is it's gawdy and pretentious. The other songs are mainly throw-away filler. I'll agree with a previous reviewer and say quality-wise, this is more like an EP, but with B-Sides attached as the main corpus.
I'll admit to only paying 19 cents for this release (plus postage) and the cover art alone makes it worth that much. As with all Michael's releases it's very pretty to look at. But beneath the gloss is much heavy laboring to make something very rough shine. So if you must hear it, do yourself a favor and buy it on the cheap."
