I was a bit nervous about this album because American Pie is such a classic but I didn’t really know what the rest of it was going to be like. Actually, it was pretty good. American Pie obviously kicks things off in style, and the rest of the album is made up of shorter tunes that, if I’m honest, aren’t so distinguishable from each other, but as a whole, it’s very listenable and a strong body of work.

I sort of thought this was going to be more rocky than it was, more powerful, a little bit more terrifying. Actually, it’s gorgeous gentle rock, unlike anything else. Bolan of course has that unique voice, and layered over the rest of the tracks, it makes for a really nice listen, and one I could listen to over and over.
