CD Reviews

Seventies Thunder
Denny Angelle | Richmond, Texas United States | 07/11/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A weighty slab of 1970s style heavy metal, with thunderous sides provided by some of the decade's biggest names. The cuts by Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper and Robin Trower aren't usually anthologized so those tunes make this CD more attractive. But when you get down to it, you can't go wrong with "Highway Star" from Deep Purple (another nice choice, rather than the overly familiar "Smoke on the Water"), Humble Pie and Mountain. Toss in a little chunky pop, in the form of T. Rex and Rick Derringer and you've got yourself a nice little period piece. Just a few quibbles: Sweet? I dunno ... And where's KISS? This goes great with the soundtrack CD from the movie "Dazed and Confused" (which does have KISS)."
