Vinyl reissue of highly touted rare 1974 private press Texas hard rock / glam obscurity."Some will find it hard to believe that a glamrock band with a gritty urban veneer came from Texas and stuck together long enough to release this milestone record. The Metz take on glam includes some of the associated clichs, like heavy chunks of chord strokes and catchy riffs, danceable rhythms and beats, and a vocalist with some theatrical influence in the singing department. Besides the obvious, Metz bring some original flair that pushes their material over the top! Instead of the lead singer getting all the attention (he sounds like a cross between Marc Bolan and a less angry Johnny Rotten), its the two or three sassy black girls that steal the show with the best vocals (leads & harmonies) on the entire album. These streetwise babes strut along as they dish out extra servings of sex appeal during performances, which is a scarce gender switch for glam rock. Metz also provides lots of mind-stripping guitar solos and untamed organ with hovering Leslie cabinets that occasionally drift into dark and gothic sound trips." - Scott "Loopden" Bubrig, ACID ARCHIVES
