Let's get this straight, Bill Nelson was nothing like David Bowie. Or Roxy Music. Ever. Comparisons like that are totally misleading and quite frankly, demeaning to all concerned. No-one was ever like Be Bop Deluxe. We all have our heroes and we are all influenced by great musicians, but Bill was always his own man. You buy something original here, forever.

I heard Axe Victim on the same night as Queen I in my friend's sister's bedroom and my life changed completely. Even in Guildford in some crumby hall somewhere Be Bop Deluxe were magic, completely different, relentlessly creative and original. Bill's guitar playing was the opposite of pop. Suddenly the top 20 became irrelevant.

Modern Music captured the moment between the rawness of the early albums and the smooth production techniques that were becoming studio standards. Modern Music and Crying to the Sky from Sunburst coincided with my first heartbreaking romance. Do you hear these programs deep within? She did. The music connected us, a vision of what could be. Nights of Wonder maybe, Nights of Wondering Why more likely. Dance of the Uncle Sam Humanoids - no-one was doing that kind of stuff. It pitched you into a New York Street, not a bar or a western cliché, but into the traffic and the madness. It hauled you out of English suburbia (Terminal Street - basically any road in Portsmouth around 1975) by the heart and hurled you into a different world (Neon). Dreams, possibilities, other ways of looking at things. Ideas. That's what you get. Make the Music Magic. It's fantastic.

So when is this beauty going to get her makeover? Bring on the remastering droids...

The standard description under the "Review" heading gives you a pretty fair indication of what to expect here. Please read and inwardly digest. I can also only echo what the other five star reviewers have to say. This is a masterpiece and difficult to seperate from their other masterpiece "Sunbirst Finish". An amazing conglomeration of musical styles and talented musicianship. Start with the old vinyl side two at "Modern Music" and follow the dreamy concept through to "Down on Terminal Street". Bliss!

Format: Audio CD
To add my earlier review, this Album has been beautifully transferred to digital. The sound balance and dynamics are excellent, losing none of the retrained power of the original vinyl, whilst revealing complex layers of sound. This work remains a haunting masterpiece. It is the only Album I would choose, if forced to keep or save just one CD out of all my collection. If any artist is to be remembered for anything musical it surely ought to be work of this quality... with a band this good. The 'sound pictures' are still fresh and real all these years on. Bill Nelson is still Britain's best kept musical secret and he deserves wider recognition. The picture of Charlie on the first page of the notes is a touching tribute to his memory. In the words of Modern Music - "When you're lonley and you're far away...When those blue guitars begin to play...Please don't let them steal your heart away...From me." Do buy this. Then play anytime and just be glad.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very smooth album one which I've recently fallen back in love with, after finally being able to get a CD at a very reason price. the album still feels fresh even after 34 years, Nelson's writing and playing are imaginative and in my humble opinion this is probably Bill Nelson's seminal work as nothing after seemed to hit the right chords.I like the fact that he wasn't afraid to experiment with additional sounds over dubbed on the to the tracks. The use of someone tuning a radio at the star of modern music gives the feeling of the listener trying to find something they want to listen to. Every track seems to have a different feel about it up to track 7 Modern music through to track 12 Modern Music(reprise) which gives a conceptual feel about the album, which adds an extra dimension to the recording.If I have one criticism of the The CD it's the addition of the the bonus tracks which I feel are superfluous to the original recording, which was fine as it was.Modern Music

I bought this album on vinyl back in 1976 at the tender age of 14. To this day it is one of the finest albums i have ever heard and is certainly one of the most timeless. The lyrics are sheer poetry, the guitar solos are - well just listen, and i will defy anyone to find a weak song on the album. It is without doubt one of the most underestimated albums ever recorded. As you can guess i love this album to pieces and as a professionl musician of twenty four years i write this from a professional aspect. To finish up all i can say is - Listen,enjoy,and be blown away.

All the other reviews are positive about this album, its impossible to buck the trend. I too was a teenager when this album came out. For the last 34 years i have never climbed off this wondrous rocket ship to the stars, romance and vintage sci fi blended with incredible melodic rock, its heavenly! This is my fave album of all time. must bid you farewell, the rocket ship is waiting again.

This album is a beautiful masterpiece from the most under-rated band of all time. Bill Nelson is a genius, and one of the greatest guitarists and song-writers in history. Listen to this beautiful album. Marvel at the lyricism of the 50s sci-fi influenced songs.....the guitar-playing is other-wordly. A once-in-a-lifetime album of immeasurable brilliance. Jeez, what a band........
