looking forward to part 2.
on 7 May 2004
Firstly I would like to say that i have read numerous reviews about 'The Neon God,' many of which were written in the first 24hrs of it's release. The majority of reviews have been written in a positive light but i honestly believe that to give a truly accurate account of this record you have to listen to it over a certain period of time to appreciate how superb this piece of work is.
This is Blackie at his best. I have to agree that it is very difficult not to compare this record with The Crimson Idol, but it stands up well on it's own, and does the difficult job of improving on it's predecessor.
Listening to comments on the poor production is becoming tedious. The base and drums do take a back seat a little but i believe this has been orchestred purposley and does no harm to the final product.
Darrell Roberts guitar playing is excellent and Blackie's vocals are superb. Buy this record, it rocks.
Being a Wasp fan for over fifteen years my opinion is that this could be Wasp's masterpiece. I'll wait for part 2 before i make my final decision.
