Blue Oyster Cult: On Your Feet Or On Your Knees

Steven Rosen, Phonograph Record, April 1975

THOUGH THIS record does not rank with the Beach Boys In Concert for sheer recording quality or the Who's Live at Leeds for spontaneous instrumentation, it does merit an armclaw as a thoughtfully conceived double live set. The Cult have delivered a wrenching assortment of stoner songs calculatingly cacophonic and executed in typically overblown manner.
