"Well I love TV and I love T. Rex. I can see through your skirt. I've got X-Ray spex. I came from the sky like a 747. I'm the bad boy, baby. I fell out of Heaven."
Zodiac Mindwarp was more than just the singer with the Love Reaction: he was metal's Poet Laureate and this album showcases Zody at his sublime best. Every verse, every chorus, every syllable is rock poetry. The album encapsulates the confidence of T. Rex without the campness, the rawness of Motörhead without the bludgeon, the scorching riffs of AC/DC, the swagger of a heavy metal Jagger, and the otherworldly coolness of the Cult. At a time when the trend in metal was leaning towards LA-style glam with excessive make-up and bubblegum melodies, Zody represented the last bastion of chest-beating, dirty, raw, feral and unashamedly masculine heavy metal. He was the Tattooed Beat Messiah, the Skull Spark Joker, the High Priest of Love with the Untamed Stare.
'Prime Mover' kickstarts the album as an anthemic statement of intent; the Love Reaction had been coming for a while, but this track made it clear they had arrived. Its twin guitar attack and snarling vocals gave the band a deserved hit single.
'Backseat Education' opens with, "You wanna ride, baby? This is a special car - two accelerators...no brakes!" Those words set the tone for the song and, indeed, for the rest of the album. It's full speed ahead, driven frantically onwards by razor-sharp riffs, thunderous drumming and cosmic lyrical genius.
'Untamed Stare' is relentless in both velocity and energy; Zody spits out words like weapons. "I love this war `cause I never lose. Cut me baby, I just bleed booze." 'Nuff said.
In 'Tattooed Beat Messiah', when Mr Mindwarp sings, "I'm a tattooed beat messiah...

I bought the original album on tape when it was first released. At that time hard rock was still a bit rebellious / alternative. These days the contemporary bands that Z Mwarp & LR were parodying are mostly consigned to rock history and you hear appetite for destruction played as musac in M&S. So, and this is subjective of course, without the benefit of that 80s context I feel the group's sound and lyrics just come across as a bit cheesy. I guess this album was very much of its time. It's still fun & Planet Girl remains a favourite. Also the nostalgia adds something for me, so I'm pleased I got it.

Delivery (super saver) a little slower than usual but still fine, as was the Amazon purchase process & product quality.

Without a doubt one of the greatest and most underrated British hard rock albums ever.

As my review title suggests, as soon as I heard "Prime Mover" for the first time, I was instantly hooked. It is bombastic, brash, unashamedly sleazy but still nicely tongue-in-cheek. Much of the rest of the album follows suit brilliantly. I'd also recommend tracks such as "Backseat Education", "Driving On Holy Gasoline" and with this expanded edition, ZM's cover of "Born To Be Wild".

To sum up, pretty much every track is a killer-riff, energetic, no-holds-barred, often deliberately crude entity of rock n roll. This album will not just kick a***, it will rip you a new one.
