Reseña de álbum

Mott was so good that the sequel, appropriately named The Hoople, has been unfairly dismissed as not living up to the group's promise. Yes, it doesn't compare to its predecessor, but most records don't. The bigger problem is that Mick Ralphs chose to leave during the supporting tour for Mott, leaving Ian Hunter as the undisputed leader of the group and subtly changing the character of the band's sound. Even with Hunter as Mott the Hoople's main songwriter, Ralphs helped shape their musical direction, so without a collaborator in hand, Hunter was left without a center. So, it isn't surprising that the record seems a little uneven, both in terms of songwriting and sound, but it's hardly without merit. "Roll Away the Stone," a leftover from Mott, is first-rate; "Crash Street Kidds" rocks viciously; "The Golden Age of Rock & Roll" is a pleasant spin on Bowie-esque nostalgia (think "Drive-In Saturday"); and Overend Watts follows through on that theme with "Born Late '58," a perfectly credible rocker. This all makes The Hoople an entertaining listen, even if it doesn't compare to Mott's earlier masterpieces. [A 2004 reissue via Sony International included the bonus tracks "Where Do You All Come From?," "Rest in Peace," and "Foxy Foxy."]

The Next Phase For The Hoople

This was my first exposure to Mott. From the unique opening strains of The Golden Age to the very poppy Roll Away The Stone, this is a fun Bowie-esque disc to listen to. Ian Hunter is an amazing songwriter, and this group was a great iteration of the band (albiet, with no Mick Ralphs). Buffin and Overend were a rock solid rhythm section and their new guitarist (Ariel bender) was melodic without pretense. Marionette was a stunner too. Really unique arrangement, a little spooky, but a great song over and over. An excellent introduction to Mott.

Another misguided reviewer

Who writes these reviews for iTunes? Again one band member departs and the reviewer thinks the band is on a slipeslide trip down to oblivion or that "it doesn't measure up?" Again, this is a closeminded view of bands. Bands are not and never should be solo acts. Sure certain elements dominate, but it's also great to see them move on after the loss of one or more. iTunes, your service is great, your catalogue of selections is marvelous, but your reviewers absolutely blow foul odors of off-targeted and even factually flawed articles. I should be writing these reviews. That being said, this album was a great followup to their earlier efforts. Hunter was a genius and Overend did a great job filling in as another contributor to the songs. I would be bored to tears if a band never evolved. Mott did. Not only were they in the midst of the glam-rock evolution, but they were also a bar band and even a foundation for punk. And this album is just as awesome today as it was in the 70s. So iTunes reviewers, you'd better join the unemployment line at social services; I'm coming to take your place!

Mott's Greatest

I agree with Hrundi - the Mick Ralphs years were fantastic he was a great songwriter, guitarist and decent singer too. But Ian Hunter was an even better songwriter and singer and this is his greatest album with Mott. Better than 'Mott' and 'All the Young Dudes' both of which were great. But this album is absolutely phenomenal. I respect the reviewer's opinion. But completely disagree. There isn't anything uneven about this. Mott reminds me of a British Springsteen especially this album. What personality this album has got - not many people can rock this hard and do it with as much style as Ian - and he shows a sense of humor too - 5 stars one through done - i'm not sure about the outtakes just yet - but this is one of the best albums of the seventies

Mott the Hoople are one of the great also-rans in the history of rock & roll. Though Mott scored a number of album rock hits in the early '70s, the band never quite broke through into the mainstream. Nevertheless, their nasty fusion of heavy metal, glam rock, and Bob Dylan's sneering hipster cynicism provided the groundwork for many British punk bands, most notably the Clash. At the center of Mott the Hoople was lead vocalist/pianist Ian Hunter, a late addition to the band who developed into...
