The phenomenally popular and influential T.Rex spearheaded the glam-rock movement, a genre owing everything to its quintessential superstar, Marc Bolan. Rivaled only by Bowie, whose own glam period followed in their flamboyant footsteps, Bolan and T.Rex created an incredible vibe and sound whose legacy lives. Driven by primal grooves, effortless hooks, trippy vocals, and deliciously fat guitar riffs, their music was both infused with hippie spirituality and raw sexuality-a rich, ripe, sonic delight both primitive and evolved. While their music defined an era, their irresistible grooves are timeless, and Bolan's later, more experimental tracks, marrying pop genius with creative expansion and proto-punk power, underscore his groundbreaking artistry.

(4 out of 5 stars)
""Futuristic Dragon" brings Marc Bolan and "T. Rex" back to a more familiar sound that he left after "The Slider" album. A lot of catchy tracks on this album, "Sensation Boulevard", "Laser Love", "Jupiter Liar", "Dreamy Lady" and "New York City". The album is leaning toward a more funkadelic sound. I find that I listen to "Electric Warrior", "The Slider", then skip past "Tanx" and "Zinc Alloy" to get to "Futuristic Dragon". It's catchy and upbeat. "Theme For A Dragon" is a real nice melody too. The All Music database gives this album a 2 and 1/2 star out of 5. I'd say 4 and 1/2 out of 5. If your getting into T. Rex then add this one to your list after you've absorbed "The Slider" and "Electric Warrior". Then on to "Dandy and The Underworld". (Don't forget his early stuff too.)"
