The Slider - Fly 1972
When "The Slider" not quite matches its predecessor's heights, it is primarily because some of the songs do not quite keep the level of "Electric Warrior". But this does not in any way make "The Slider" a weak or uninteresting album - here's plenty to enjoy.
"Metal Guru"and "Telegram Sam"(perhaps a little too much a rip-off of "Get it On ") - are well-known single-hits, and "Rock On ", "Baby Boomerang" and "Main Man " belong among the group's best-known songs. Among the less typical numbers you'll find some of Bolan's best songs, such as "Ballrooms of Mars, ""The Slider" and "Spaceball Ricochet".
Among the bonus tracks "Thunderwing" is a good number in classic T.Rex arrangement.
