3.0 out of 5 stars If you like Man, try this! August 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
My acquaintance with Neutrons began when I found the "Black Hole Star" LP in a library and borrowed it. I was intrigued by the obscure band name and the uninformative plain silver sleeve (if there was an inner sleeve, it had probably got lost): no track details or musician credits, if I remember correctly. The music was really interesting: kind of like progressive folksy rock with heavy use of synthesizers and occasional violin. I was particularly impressed with the final three tracks: "Dance of the Psychedelic Lounge Lizards" boasts a killer violin riff, well-placed synth and a brit-folk melody you get hooked on instantly - the vocoder used in the chorus adds to the originality of the song. "Going to India" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Commerciality fans would probably get a headache from the multiple falsetto vocals, the high-pitched synth sound and the violin solo. That's their problem - I enjoy the stickily sweet ice cream with the (not credited) sitar solo at the end as the cherry on top. "Snow Covered Eyes", a steadily driving rocker, closes the album with yet another excellent synth/distorted guitar solo and an instantly catchy melody.

I studied a good source book and found out Neutrons was a spin-off of Man, a group I had listened to for three albums worth, but found out their music was not for my taste. Actually bassist Michael "Will" Youatt and keyboardist Phil Ryan had been in an early version of Neutrons (who never recorded anything) before teaming up with Man for the albums "Be Good to Yourself At Least Once a Day" (1972) and "Back Into the Future" (1973). They left Man after that and re-formed Neutrons with guitarist Martin Wallace and drummer John Weathers.
