Released in 1975, this was the last album to stick to the sound of the previous four, although the sound quality had greatly improved. The songs are really tight due to a change in drummers, and feature some really interesting song structures. If you are a fan of 70's hard rock this is a must for your collection. Although Budgie never achieved the success of bands such as Black Sabbath, their riff driven tunes equally stand the test of time. Budgie was one of those bands that had various influences but remained totally unique.

Growing up in the Heavy Metal mecca of San Antonio, Texas in the late 70's and early 80's, I had the opportunity to hear Budgie on 99.5 KISS (remember DJ's Joe Anthony and Lou Roney?) in addition to the mainstream bands of the time (Moxy, Rush, Lone Star, UFO, Riot, etc). To this day, Bandolier still remains the best Budgie recording. I recently obtained it on CD and it absolutely blew me away the same way it did when I was a kid. Tony Bourge's guitar playing is as fresh and original today as it was almost 30 years ago. Bourge has been imitated by many but matched by none. The title track "Breaking all the House Rules" simply rocks, especially when it transitions to Burke Shelly's bass line with Bourge's guitar in the background. Slipaway is a melodic masterpiece. Who Do You Want For Love set the standard for the grunge bands style of the early 90's, starting soft and then injecting fast and furious guitar work. I Can't See My Feelings: Try not playing your air guitar to this one! I Ain't No Mountain got tons of airplay in SA, listen and you'll know why. Finally, we come down to Napoleon Bona-Parts 1 and 2. The opening acoustic guitar works spellbinds you, only to be brought back crashing to earth by Bourge's electric guitar as the song transitions to Part 2. Only downside to this fine recording is the playing time, clocking in at a little over 36 minutes. Nevertheless, the quality simply outweighs the quantity. Don't waste your money on any Budgie recordings after 1978's Impeckable. If you purchase only one Budgie title, make it Bandolier. You will not be disappointed.

Budgie's peculiar yet seminal 1970's British metal generated much more influence (acknowledged to this day by bands like Metallica) than actual record sales. Import geeks like yours truly used to rejoice whenever we "scored" one of Budgie's obscure LP's, salivating over the Roger Dean cover art like a Sotheby's bidder ogling a rare Picasso; whilst the general record buying public remained (at best) blissfully oblivious. For the neophyte, the excellent "Bandolier" is a good place to start, showcasing everything "Budgie"-from simple but effective crunchy metal riffs to curiously jazzy, sometimes acoustic melodic passages (frequently within the same song!) It is not unusual for a number to run on for 10+ minutes (witness only 6 songs on "Bandolier"!). Despite this leisurely approach to song structure, Budgie manage to pull it off without sounding boring or self-indulgent (like many of thier close cousins, the 70's Prog-Rockers). If you like "Bandolier", and have no problems acclimating to lead singer Burke Shelly's unique helium-huffer vocals, I predict you'll be hooked!

Budgie is just one of those underrated influential bands of the 70's. This CD captures their finest moments in creativeness and power. Their hooks and bluesy influence come together into one awesome sound throughout 'Bandolier'. They weren't really into a primarily 'riff rock' thing - they just had a great command of combining some killer riffs into a well-constructed song, which ranged from balladesque to blues, however the hard rock undercurrent was always there...thus their influence to so many rock bands, even today. That, in and of itself, deserves 5 stars! They were never a Zep or anything popularity-wise, however one can tell by listening to them that they were in the ears of many up and coming rock bands of the same era - and many more to come.
Budgie is a 'stayer' in my books - a band worth listening to today - not just because they are 'classic rock' or something as worn out as that - but because their stuff still sounds fresh and exciting today as it did then (in other words, not the dreaded 'dated'). Mind you, the later Budgie lapsed into the 80's destruction of hard rock as we know it...however this is one CD that replays their talent pre-80's that captured them at their best. 'Breaking all the house rules' is worth the price of admission alone!

This is Budgie's fifth album and is part of the recently remastered Noteworthy edition. As of 6/10/07, this edition includes all the original albums through 'If I Were Brittania I'd Waive the Rules' (1971-1976). It was remastered by the same guys who did the first, and excellent, Uriah Heep remasters, Robert M. Corich and Mike Brown. The redesign and artwork are by the guy who did the first, and somewhat problematic, Black Sabbath remasters, Hugh Gilmour. (Actually, his work was excellent; it was the music remastering that had problems.) The bonus tracks were remastered by Martin Giles and Robert M. Corich. This edition has been done with the cooperation of the band and its management.

The packaging is fine, though I really wish Noteworthy had gone to the trouble of hiring a proofreader: the liner notes have errors galore. The credits seem thorough, which is nice, and the interview quotes provide some meaningful information. The bonus tracks are acceptably annotated as well.

This edition sounds better than the first Repertoire CD edition--sharper, clearer, broader, deeper--but not better enough for me to want to invest in a whole new edition.

What make the Noteworthys noteworthy are the bonus tracks. But even there I'm not sure they're worth the investment. Some of the bonus tracks do seem very enticing, especially the ones with Tony Bourge.

Such as "Honey"! Although not listed in the amazon description, it is the first bonus track on 'Bandolier.' "Honey" is mentioned in the Repertoire discography accompanying some of their Budgie CDs, but unfortunately Repertoire didn't include it in their otherwise great 2CD Budgie compilation, 'An Ecstasy of Fumbling.
