Electric Savage

~ Release group by Colosseum II


Electric savage issued in 1977 is my fav Colosseum II album, here we have everything, from fast pomping passages to more mellow parts, the sound and manner of composing here is more refined then on their debute, the musicianship is tight, great ideas and top notch pieces. The interplay between guitar and organ (keyboards) and drums I must say is absolutly killer and inventive. There are some passages that truly shine no less, like on opening Put it this way, what to say really , impressive playing from each msucian, Gary Moore in duel with master Don Airey, somemthing not to be missed by any prog/jazz rock lover. Another two highlights for me are The Scorch and ending track Intergalactic strut, again marvelous as always. So, I think that this might be regarded as their best, at least from my side together with their next and final one War dance. Recommended, anyone intrested into this kind of music will not be disippointed a second , Electric savage kick as all the way, even the cover art is great.4.5 stars
