CD Reviews

The Fifth Killer

"Now we come to the acme(?) of the Iron Butterfly saga. At least Doug Ingle, Ron Bushy, and Lee Dorman decided that it was time for little Erik Braun to go and wood-shed a little bit longer. And that Doug Ingle and company needed a duel guitar attack, hence Mike Pinera and Larry Rhinehardt. Pinera(I believe) a west coast picker fresh out of Blues Image(or maybe it's post Blues Image) whatever, his presence along with L.R.(Rhino a southeast coast prodigy and pre Captain Beyond member) make for one of the best duel guitar duos to ever grace a stage and recording studio.
This cd takes off smoothly then soars, levels off, and soars up into rock space the musical frontier. These 5 musicians went heart and soul on this project. I highly recommend it. And if your a true ex-hippie who enjoyed the summer of love days, then put this in your cd player and go take a drive out into the country at night(especially at night) to your local highest altitude and park, put the seat back and space out man!!! Right on and far out, people. A ex-hippie fan"
A great lost classic

"Iron Butterfly has been dismissed by many, if not all contemparary reviewers. I think they are dead wrong. The band was inovative and unique. But of all their work this album belongs in every serious listeners collection. This is an extraordinarily fine disc. This disc has it all: wonderful lyrics, great hooks and melodies, and the musicianship is of the very highest caliber. It sounds like nothing else the band ever did. For those of you who enjoyed Captain Beyond, this album is the jumping off point for that effort. I have listened to this disc for 25 years and it is just as fresh and exciting each time I reach for it. Do yourself a huge favor and buy this disc."

"Iron Butterfly's best album lyrically and vocally. And probably the best from an album cover artwork standpoint, too. From the front cover's casket and cradle washing up on shore at sunrise to the back cover's nude flapper with butterfly in hand, it's unique. No two ways about it. The vocals on this album are excellent with not one but two strong baritones, Doug Ingle and Mike Pinera. I have to give the edge to Doug Ingle for having the better voice for this band.Doug wails his vocals raw on my favorite cut on this CD, "Soldier In Our Town". Written by Ingle and lyricist Robert Woods Edmonson, This is a beautiful acoustic ballad with EXTREMELY strong vocals and an electric, psychedelic fade out at the end. I can't compare it to any other song I've ever heard. If In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was Iron Butterfly's tour de force, Metamorphosis deserves an honorable mention as a new Iron Butterfly sound for a new decade."
