T. Rex


T. Rex’s followup to Electric Warrior never hit as hard as that album did in the US, but back in the UK it was an absolute glam-rock monster, showcasing Marc Bolan’s seemingly effortless ability to create huge hits and intriguing, unusual deep cuts. The stomp and sass of “Metal Guru” and “Telegram Sam” racked up further number ones, but the moody sigh of “Ballrooms of Mars” and the electronic elfin beauty of “Main Man” remain equally, remarkably affecting.
