An excellent debut album from a 70's rock band. A classic.
on 21 November 1999
"Axe Victim" is a classic Bill Nelson song, with his raunchy guitar quivering from the opening moments. 25 years after it's original release it still jumps from the speakers and tugs at your heartstrings. "Third Floor Heaven" and "Jets At Dawn" are two further classic tracks, but the two best tracks are probably "Adventures In A Yorkshire Landscape" and "No Trains To Heaven". "Rocket Cathedrals" is a bit of an oddity, as it's the only song not penned by Nelson, but still an out and out rock song. All in all, "Axe Victim" was an important debut album by a band that was largely ignored by the music media at the time.
