Editorial Reviews

Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition / Fully re-mastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 16 page full color booklet, 4,000 word essay, enhanced art-work, memorabilia, rare photos and full band involvement. There have been many great bands that didn't receive the level of recognition due to them, but none have been more deserving than Angel. Cruelly denied the opportunity to bask in the spotlight of success, Angel's story is a tear-jerker in the grandest tradition.

The album cover shows five fairly effeminate looking rockers in their white "angel" outfits. But, don't worry, the glam rock phase won't come until later! These guys are still a helluva band, though not as aerial or pristine as on their awesome debut. There is more punch and crunch in such ballsy hard rockers as "Mirrors" and "Pressure Points". Prog rock and emotional melodies are still there on "The Fortune" and "Feelings" (songs more in the vein of the 1st album). Frank Dimino is a helluva good singer. Punky Meadows is reminiscent of Brian May. Giuffria is busy as ever painting his pictures on piano, clavinet, harpsichord, mellotron and synthesizer. Really, the last ARTISTIC Angel album before the move to a wholesale AOR/"pop metal"/stadium rock format. For me, they were never the same band after 1976. This one is smokin' though, in spite of 1 or 2 duff tracks. If you like the "Angel" album, you'll like this follow up.

Perhaps their best album. I wonder how big this band would have gotten had Casablanca invested more money in promoting them instead of Kiss. Sadly, the label wanted hits and their songwriting changed to please the label. This is evident by looking at their Anthology album which omits some of their greatest songs - the Fortune, Mirrors, and Feelings. All three on Helluva Band. Get this along with their debut album and On Earth As It Is In Heaven. You won't be disappointed.

This is TRUE ROCK! It's not made for punk-rockers, alternative rockers, pop rockers, etc...just for *rockers*. Lots of loud guitars and just plain, downright ROCK-n-ROLL!!

It's a real shame that this band is one of the forgotten, because this record is a classic. With high energy songs led by powerhouse vocals and dazzling keyboard effects, this is a must for all classic rock fans.

"Feelin' Right" is the straight forward rocker that kicks off the record; and it's a song that utilizes the simple classic rock formula, while incorporating a sharp and resounding vocal track to do the driving. The swirling artistry of Giuffria's keyboards was really what Angel's existence was based on though. Even on a simple straight forward rocker like this opening track, Giuffria's presence is a constant. If it's not trading licks with guitarist Punky Meadows on "Feelin' Right", it's mesmerizing us with a four minute intro on "The Fortune". Every song contains a large dose of over-the-top keyboards from an amazing player. Speaking of "The Fortune".....it just happens to be the second track on the lp. A personal favorite of mine, "The Fortune" is a progressive masterpiece. A song that transmits emotion at every twist and turn. An ominous keyboard intro leads to a delicate acoustic guitar and voice moment, which ultimately culminates in a menacing jam where we hear from every member of the band. As the album progresses, we see the classic verse-chorus-verse formula put into dramatic effect. With songs like "Anyway You Want It", "Mirrors", and "Chicken Soup" Angel utilizes every element at their disposal to make simple classic rock songs sound like something special. The spark in these songs is usually Giuffria's keys, and when it's not..... you can count on Dimino's vocals to keep you entranced. The combination of these two entities is best heard on the eloquent ballad "Feelings".

While their first album was fantastic on its own, Helluva Band is by far the best. "Feelin' Right," with its driving guitar and the best guitar/keyboard solos ever, is the best cut on the LP. The production style of Derek Lawrence and Jim Sullivan, who also worked with the likes of Ritchie Blackmore among others, is superb. (The "so far" comment above? Angel has recorded a new CD called "In the Beginning" due out sometime this summer. I've heard a couple of cuts and it is vintage Angel!)

"Helluva Band" is the 2nd album from Angel, that was released in 1976. After I had bought their DEBUT album, which I really loved, in June 1977, I then decided to give "Helluva Band" a chance, later that month, & am I ever glad that I did. I love the "Helluva Band" album just as equally as their debut album. I would like to offer my opinion & review of each song, as follows:

1. "Feelin' Right"...A definite feel good song & a great way to start this album. It has fun & happy words & it also talks about "GIN", which is my favorite "HARD DRINK", as I just love Gin & Tonic, every now & then. I really enjoy this song a lot.

2. "The Fortune"...I really love the 3:58 instrumental, that features the Wind & Choir & Organ & Oboe & Synthesizer & finally the Gong sound, just before the singing starts. All that I just mentioned, could remind me a lot of a Funeral Requiem Mass. Once the vocal starts, the song is NOT the least bit uplifting @ all. In an oddball sort of way, this song DOESN'T depress me, like some other rock & roll groups & their songs can. But in my honest opinion, it is STILL my TOP favorite song on this album. It is probably the long & haunting instrumental intro that really SOLD me on THIS song.

3. "Anyway You Want It"...Be careful here, because many of those who may remember THIS song, will DISCOVER that the INSTRUMENTAL INTRO is MISSING, on the CD, as compared to the orig. RECORD version. Otherwise, this is a good song which is quite SHORT in it's length.

4. "Doctor Ice"...This song is rather odd, but I have always enjoyed it, just the same.

5. "Mirrors"...This song is good & kinda weird. The song TITLE is NEVER mentioned, when it is sung.

6. "Feelings"...A pretty, but powerful & haunting ballad.
