Bolan ... Genius.... nuff said,
This review is from: Electric Warrior: Remastered (Audio CD)
bolan the wizard. who ever coined that frase was bang on the money. where do you start with a true wordsmith. I can only think of two guys that can put words together and instantly have a hit=lennon and Dylan. obviously Bolan never broke the states,who cares. Who started this obsession with uncle Sam anyway. All the real and important poets come from our septic isle. London has a rich history forget the blitz, what about our music. we influence not only the rest of britian but the whole world. anyway lets talk about a forgotten masterpiece=electric warrior ! my personal favourite Planet queen,its subtle but hits you like an intercity[jou have to be older than thirty to get that reference].Then you have the sublime 'get it on'.Who can forget lifes a gas. These words and and lyrics do not come frome mere mortals like me and you,they are torn from the very souls of our heroes. Bolan the musical genuis was never fully appreciated in the heyday of british rock. it took his untimely death to make a nation wake up to one of our own pure poets. long live the words of the Wizzard .
