Blue Oyster Cult: Secret Treaties (Columbia)

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, April 1974

BLUE OYSTER CULT was formed with a very definite idea in mind, and they haven't deviated from or enlarged that idea much in two years. For that reason, their music has become progressively less interesting to me, although on a certain level it has become refined to a razor's edge of perfection.

Total word count of piece: 650
