Like Sunburst Finish before it, it's a meticulously arranged album, with not a note out of place and everything in the service of the song Be Bop Deluxe, led by the closest thing the '70s had to a second Bryan Ferry in the shape of the dapper and stylish Bill Nelson, were always a square..
Take Control leaps from the speakers with a riff you could boil down to make soup with... Ah yes, the NWOBHM, or New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, to give it its full name! For those who were around at the time, it really was the most tremendously thrilling time to be a metal fan...
