The Slider by T Rex, 1972
"flawlessly executed, and every bit the classic that its predecessor is." (Steve Huey)
"I like my songs to be durable to the ear and exciting to the mind. My lyrics always come before the music. Repetition comes into my songs a lot because I think my lyrics are so obscure that they need to be hammered home. You need to hear them eight or nine times before they start to make sense. I don't see anything wrong with that" – Marc Bolan, interview, 1972.
