Customer Review

on 19 March 2010
It would be wise to disregard several points in the earlier customer review. True, there are no bonus tracks here but that is a minor quibble. The music is the main thing so please note that the album is remastered since the Virgin CD long ago and the sound is excellent. The fact is: Nuclear Nightclub is one of the classic 70s albums from one of the best and most imaginative and distinctive bands in the world. Ever.
It isn't fair to compare Wigwam to Genesis, as the other reviewer has done. That's like comparing figs to avocados. Gabriel-Genesis, Wigwam, Earth and Fire, Supersister, Kayak, Tull etc were all brilliant in their own way. It also isn't fair to compare the original Wigwam line-up (which featured Pembroke, Pohjola and Gustavson) to the Mark II line up (Pembroke, Rechardt and Kotilainen / Hietanen). While the original pre-Nuclear line-up was certainly more diverse and eclectic in compositions and arrangements by three brilliant composers, the Nuclear Nightclub line-up was VERY solid due to the strong package of Pembroke and Rechardt. All songs on this album are powerful, addictive and thoroughly engaging as is the album as a whole entity. Of course, after you buy this you will need to explore the earlier albums which are equally brilliant in their own way. Being, Fairyport, Tombstone Valentine: three more essential classics. Don't dither!
(PS: see and buy also: Jim Pembroke / Hot Thumbs O'RILEY - Wicked Ivory. Brilliant!)
