Atomic Rooster - Nice 'n' Greasy (1973)

The fifth album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, strings, arp synth, electric piano, organ, piano and vocals.

A new album from this band. An album also named IV for some reasons.

This band was at this time a start-stop band from now one as they took a looong break after this album.

The great Chris Farlowe did the vocals and Vincent Crane did the arrangements and the tangents here. 

The band had ditched their progressive rock roots and gone for hard rock and blues on this album. Most of the music is pretty dirty and raw.

The more calm and controlled Goodbye Planet Earth is a good track by far the best piece of music on this album. It is a semi-classic track too. 

The rest of the album is run-of-the-mill songs and pretty much worth forgetting.

The result is a decent album but nothing more than that.
