City Boy - Heads Are Rolling (1980)
The sixth album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, drums, keyboards, percussion, bass and vocals.
This band from Birmingham started out as a reasonably proggy art rock band before they went for fame and money later on.
I spotted this album in the LP collection of a father of a childhood's friend forty years ago and the image stayed with me as a cool one. It is one of the reasons I started to review the albums of this band.
So here I am at this album I remember from my childhood.
The band went very commercial on this album although the album starts with some riffs and vocal lines that is taken straight out of a Thin Lizzy album.
The rest is a mix of uptempo tracks and ballads.
Pop-rock it is and it is not too bad. I have heard far worse. But prog rock, it is not and there is not much to enjoy here.
Hence the rating....
