5.0 out of 5 stars No Ghosts in this Machine, October 21, 2005
This review is from: Machine Head (Audio CD)
The first thing to state about Machine Head is that if any group were to release an album of this calibre today you would not be able to avoid hearing about them in the media. But the fact is that no group today will release an album like this, not even come close. The main reason for this is quite simple; this album was a product of a different age where the motivation was to create music that was a form of exploration and which, when it was at it's best, pushed the boundaries of what was possible. That simply does not happen anymore where far too many groups and musicians are in the music business because it is a career option and a means to make money, and not because they have any understanding of, or sensitivity to the fact that music might be a path to knowledge. Suffice to say that Machine Head blows away anything around today by a country mile and in another 30 years time will sound just as good if not better than what is going to be around then if current trends are anything to go by. No point in giving individual reviews of the songs because the album should be taken as a complete package and as such it is a razor sharp statement of metal integrity.
