5.0 out of 5 stars TRUE CONFESSIONS, March 14, 2002
This review is from: Agents of Fortune (Audio CD)
To start with, let me say this is more a review of the original release, with the extra tracks being considered a bonus. This is one of my favorite releases of all-time. There are no weak songs out of any of the original tracks[1-10], although "Tenderloin" is my least favorite. The four bonus tracks are interesting looks at songs I definitely loved the previous released versions. Up to this point BOC had several good releases, but this was the first time they put it all together on one disc. "Don't Fear the Reaper" certainly put them into the spotlight. They even enjoyed airplay on AM stations. AOR stations went nuts and played almost every song.
I don't want to have you think that BOC peaked here, but this was the begining of the years that saw them at the fore-front of hard rock. Some of the best songs here are "Tattoo Vampire", "Revenge of Vera Gemini", "Sinful Love", and, of course, "Don't Fear the Reaper". My favorite of the original songs is "This Ain't the Summer of Love". I have to confess, I really enjoyed three of the bonus tracks with the exception being "Sally". I tend to like what I haven't had pounded into my head over and over and these bonus tracks are very fresh.
The quality of this disc is top notch. The recording and pressing are excellent quality. This is a very good package for those of you that already enjoy BOC, or, those of you that are looking for a special package, beyond a greatest hits release, this is a great place to start. I also suggest FIRE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN.
