"Pastiche? Homage? It’s a killer blast regardless."

More King Tuff More King Tuff

Black Moon Spell proves that you can never have enough Marc Bolan.

Some of the more glam sections are forsaken for more outlandish garage growl, as on the sharp stab of Sick Mind or the pagan rock swell of the opening and title track. The stoner R’n’R grooves of yesteryear are evident in the likes of Rainbow’s Run and Eyes Of The Muse; elsewhere there is The Beatles-esque paisley-swirl of Staircase Of Diamonds and the sugar-rush hallucinogenics of Black Holes In Stereo. Pastiche? Homage? It’s a killer blast regardless.
