Lucifer’s Friend – Where Groupies Killed the Blues (1972)

This, the second album from classic progg-metal group Lucifer’s Friend is even better than their self-titled debut album. This album is more progressive while still maintaining heavy guitar riffs. The second track ‘Rose On The Wine’ is fantastic, it starts of with a beautiful piano intro that evolves and gives way to a heavy guitar riff. This song also has a long acoustic guitar solo in the middle and at the end complex backward riffs and tempo changes, great! It must also be said that even the art cover and the lyrics are very tasteful indeed (something that rarely can be said about classic metal albums) and John Lawton’s vocals are strong and beautiful. This album is highly recommended for both 70’s metal fans and progg fans. But if you are strictly a prog fan you should perhaps start with the excellent ‘Banquet’ album instead. –taken from… progarchives.
