Having been a BOC fan since 1974, I had all their albums, bought them as soon as they came out. This album was no exception. But, after the previous three or four misfires, I wasn't expecting what I heard. The album started off with a fantastically heavy gothic rhythm, working it's way up through to the end of the album. Each track was so well put together. It was also nice to see some absent band members (the Bouchards) re-joining the band, for what is, I think, the best BOC album ever.
Sure, some tracks had appeared on previous albums, namely Astronomy and Blue Oyster Cult (previously done as Subhuman!), and the title track Imaginos is maybe a bit samey, but, as a band to have this album on your CV, is to die for.
I had this on vinyl for many years, eventually getting it (with great difficulty) on CD.
BUY IT! Whatever way you can.
