Atomic Rooster - Atomic Rooster '80 (1980)

The sixth album from this British band.

The band was a trio with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, organ, keyboards and vocals.

The band had been split for several years before they reformed and released this album and another album before they split for good. I only got this album of the reformed roosters.

The band had started out as an innovative hard prog and psych band ten years earlier. The debut album is pretty good.

Vincent Crane, the band owner before he passed on in 1989, had led the band down the path to getting back again for this album.

The music is pretty much hard rock with organ and guitars. It has a lot of psych too. 

The vocals is fairly good and the organs gives the song a lot of colours. The songs are pretty decent without impressing me. They are saved by the organs. 

The end result is a decent album and one well worth checking out. Atomic Rooster is a band well worth checking out for those interested in the history of hard rock and progressive rock. Start with the first album.

But this album is not bad at all.
