Sounds like a natural follow-up to the "Mott" album (see earlier post). The last full-length by the old gang (though Mick Ralphs had already left and been replaced by Ariel Bender) and a strong swan song it was. I know most hold the former "Mott" higher, but to my taste this has four tracks that almost makes it better . "The Golden Age Of Rock'n'roll" and "Roll Away The Stone" are two obvious hit songs, "Crash Street Kids" a heavy, chaotic cut with great guitars, and my absolute favorite "Marionette" - Hunter's hardest attack against the rock business and one of his best compositions so far. Rude and melodic at the same time, complex and catchy with inbuilt rythmic misfits adding an extra touch. Non of the other tracks are bad, but these are the ones that makes the album fly for me. Issued and reissued on vinyl, 8-track, cassette and CD through the years, some with bonus tracks. First US on Columbia (PC 32871). Premiere UK had label as shown here and matt stickered cover with lyric/pictute insert. (MÖHÖ*)
