Artist: T. Rex
Album: Electric Warrior
Here we go again, my fellow music nerds! This week I am delving deep into the heart of my music collection. I feel that we’ve become familiar with one another by now, so I wanted to give you a little insight to an album that is definitely one of my favorites of all time. You know the type of album I mean: the unmistakable “desert island” album.
Anyone who has spent more than five minutes with me will tell you about my deep love for T. Rex. In my opinion, they’re one of the most UNDERRATED bands in the history of music and rock-and-roll. Since I was a young girl of 14, I remember the moment I heard “Cosmic Dancer” from the album Electric Warrior, and I was different from that moment on. It was one of those music epiphanies; that moment I knew music was something meant for not only hearing but, feeling the music physically.
This album becomes a habit. The groove unleashes a fun experience for listeners to enjoy alone or anywhere. You can’t help but sing and shake to songs like “Jeepster,” which will undoubtedly wake your music senses that have longed for a rattle like this. Their spunky and fun lyrics make you feel like you have always known them:
This album is one that I could rave about for an eternity and still not do it justice. Even if it is not an equally sacred experience for you, just let it do what it does best while you groove and have a blast. For any record collector, Electric Warrior is a must-have in the collection. If you don’t love this album, then shame on you, because it has been held in the highest regards among music enthusiasts! You should be quick to love it, with its saucy guitars, vocal harmonies, trumpets, tambourines, violins, uninhibited lyrics, arena rock energy, deep poetry, and attitude… This album has it all! I give it 10 burning-hot suns out of 10!
So, fellow music lovers, if you don’t already have this album, then get a copy and just listen. Remember I could have loved you good like a planet./ I could have chained your heart to a star./But it really doesn’t matter at all, No it really doesn’t matter at all, life’s a gas.
