4.0 out of 5 stars An Overlooked Classic 8 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When this album first came out it was dismissed, overlooked or plain ignored by just about everyone. It was not the normal type of T.Rex/Marc Bolan music everyone expected but something that hinted of much more.
The album has a lot of soul influences but tempered against a "white rock and roll" background. In a way it paved the way for the "white soul" of later in the decade.
Ignore the song titles, some of which are just plain silly but listen to the music and the words and you will get a selection of highly infectious songs, still as fresh today as when they were first written that stay in the memory long after the c.d. is over.
Marc Bolan was an innovator. Laughed at in his day but nearly thirty years after his death is finally receiving the recognition denied to him when he was alive.
Together with "Electric Warrior"and "The Slider" this album is an essential for anyone wanting to discover what Marc Bolan was all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spaceage Funk is a Groove! 13 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
'Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow' was released in 1974 (which may I say is a splendid title.) As an album people have said that it was a comercial failure. Marc was trying to get rid of the glam rock sound and adding soul and making the T.Rex sound heavier. Adding more strength in backing vocals, heavy guitars, a louder more hard hitting sound.
In my opinion I think this album is under-rated. It deserves more recognition that what It's earned I think. Also the album was a real grower on me. The more I listened to it the more I liked it.
The album starts off with the song 'Venus loon'. 'Venus loon' is a very cathchy song. Same with 'Sound Pit', 'Explosive Mouth', and 'Galaxy'. Also when I listen to all these songs there is something quite magical about it that I just can't put my finger on. 'Change' is a down tempo song which is has a nice sadness about it. Nameless Wildness is a fun song. 'Teenage Dream' the only single from the album. 'Teenage Dream' is a masterpiece! The song is soposed to be about Marc's star on a wane. 'Liquid Gang' another catchy fun song. 'Carsmile Smith and the Old One' is another sad song. Then a beautiful medley arrives - 'You've got to jive to stay alive / Spanish Midnight'. 'Interstellar Soul' - Another fun song. 'Painless Persuasion v. The Meathawauk Immaculate' is another great song. And the last 2 songs are 'The Avengers (Superbad') which is a fun song and 'The Leopards Featuring Gardenia And The Mighty Slug' which is quite weird, Marc does a song where he talks through it which is quite cool.

By DavyA TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album showcases Marc's brave stab at rock / soul / funk fusion & an evolution of the T.Rex sound.
This album was a sea change in musical direction, as Marc integrated the influence of the sounds of black America with his own unique brand of rock & roll.
This is by no means the strongest T.Rex album & along with Bolan's Zip Gun, is probably the weakest of Marc's efforts.
However, Marc's attempts to create an "Interstellar Soul" sound, was innovative, if nothing else.
The sound evident on this album, evolved further on Zip Gun (although even Marc admitted the weaknesses in that record) & came to fruition on the hugely under rated Futuristic Dragon album (before a return to basics with the magnificent Dandy In The Underworld).
This has some hugley enjoyable tunes, along side some,at times, overblown efforts (at times some of the backing vocals take too much away from the songs)
Marc was trying something new but although I do enjoy this record, some of it doesn't quite come off & some of it sounds a bit lazy.
Still, Marc was ahead of the game with this album (which other British act at the time was trying to create this kind of sound ?)- not Bolan's best but worth having just to hear some innovative musical stylings we now often take for granted.
