After releasing the magnificent Amazing Kamikaze Syndrome, Slade produced just one more truly great single, The Myzsterious Myzster Jones, which is on this album. But beyond the quality of this one song, the cracks were beginning to show in this once world-class outfit. The riffs and guitar work are still catchy and tight, but Noddy's lyrics were becoming rather patchy, if not a little cheesey, and overall it lacks the punch and vitality that regular listeners would expect from this band. Which isn't to say it's a bad album - Slade on a bad day can outrock all comers - it simply isn't their best, and marks the beginning of a decline from which they unfortunately never recovered. Radio Wall of Sound was next - nuff said. Buy this if you love Slade, as I do. If yours is more of a passing interest, then there are much better examples of this excellent band's work to choose from.
Slade proved they could still write an album to compare with their 70's smashes with Rogues Gallery. A minor Masterpiece, from the lush "Harmony", to the hit single written all over it "Myzterious Mizster Jones", to xmas hit "All Join Hands" to live favourite "7 Year Bitch" they proved that they could still walk on water!
