The First Sign That Things Were Slipping Away

AndyT.Rex

I bought this album on it's release date in 1974. As much as I wanted to love it, it wasn't up to Marc Bolan's previous albums and singles. There are some stand out tracks - Venus Loon (once penned as a single after Teenage Dream) Liquid Gang,Sound Pit and Intestellar Soul. Marc Bolan fell under the influence of Gloria Jones after this and the music suffered. Thankfully he released the \"back to boogie\" Dandy In The Underworld before his death. Most tracks on this album omitted Ms Jones and were the better for it. You can't take away the man's legacy of dozens of classic performances though.

Good to see another original album and not one of the many compilations that are about. Not the best album T.Rex produced,certainly not in the same league as "Electric Warrior" or "Slider" or "Tanx". Having said that Change and Teenage Dream are stand out tracks that compare well with earlier better known ones. The main problem I find with this album is the screeching voices of backing singers and that some tracks seem to run out of ideas. Having said that not having heard the album for over 20 years (I have it on vinyl somewhere) I found that I still enjoyed listening to it. Well done e music, now how about some of the other original albums including those from the days of Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Who Are…U.S. Girls

By Marissa G. Muller, Contributor

That Meghan Remy's retro solo project is called U.S. Girls is perhaps the first indication of the duality lurking in her music. "I knew I was going to be only one person making music, but I thought the plural was funny," she explains over the phone from her Toronto home. Her playfulness might seem unexpected given the gravity of topics she writes about – abortion, depression, suicide, lost love and loneliness – but there's a… more »
