By Tim Brough VINE VOICE on January 6, 2015
Format: Audio CD
Sucked into the quicksand of its own hype, theatrical rock singer Jobriath's second album went virtually unnoticed in 1974. LP copies of his debut and "Creatures of The Street" were so rare that collectors were shelling out big bucks for them on e-bay and similar sites. It took the fandom of one Morrissey and his compilation reissue of Lonely Planet Boy to remind folks that Jobriath was for real.

With that identity re-established, the Collectors' Choice wing of Rhino has brought Jobriath's two albums back onto the marketplace. You can now listen to them 35 years after the deadly hype that drowned them and after Jobriath's death in 1983. Unfortunately, you can also hear the reasons why Jobraith's music never really caught on through "Creatures of The Street." The music comes off as stagy and more than a little pretentious, with arrangements that sound like they were tailored for a Broadway Musical. The two brief interlude/bridges, "What a Pretty" and "Dietrich/Fondyke," are pointless theater, and frankly, Jobriath was not the best of vocalists.

That said, there are a few songs here that are solid trashy glam. "Good Times" and "Heartbeat" are decent, and probably helped establish Jobriath's live reputation (google his videos sometime, there are a couple). "Scumbag" is close to Elton John's character sketches, while "Ooo La La" is kind of soulful. His band, the creatures, plays with zing and the string/orchestral arrangements add nicely, if a bit over the top.
