Customer Reviews

This album is simply awesome!

I've had this album since it came out in 1985 on cassette! Still in grade school :)

I absolutely love this album. There are some truly great songs here. If your a fan of BOC and have avoided it because of others bad opinions about it, then you cheated yourself out of a great and memorable album.

There is a lot of atmosphere and depth here.

Much like BOC will be on tour forever, this album will easily remain as one of my top 10 albums..forever. (Ok, that was cheesy, but it's actually true)! This album is truly awesome!

Underrated and that's a shame..

This is a great record. I bought it as soon as in came out on vinyl and pretty much wore it out. It's great to have it on CD (and now digital download) again.

If you're a BOC fan this should be part of your collection - for Perfect Water if no other reason (although Dancing in the Ruins is also a terrific song).

Some lost BOC gems contained within

After the underwhelming sales of "The Revolution By Night" and the departure of long time member Allen Lanier, BOC was in a musical no man's land. This was their last attempt at regaining the mainstream success that they had lost before being relegated to "on tour forever" status.

Unfortunately, "Club Ninja" would not regain the throne for BOC. In the attempt however, they did provide a nice collection of songs which any true BOC fan can appreciate. I would even go as far as to say that this sounds more like BOC than the previous studio album "The Revolution by Night".

There are some nice songs here. "Perfect Water" is classic Buck Dharma all the way. "Dancing in the Ruins" is a catchy tune reminiscent of "Burnin For You" in spite of the fact that no band members received writing credit. "White Flags" is an energy packed opening tune and "Madness to the Method" is a nice closer. The bottom line is that, to me, there is not a clunker in this entire collection.

It's apparent that this collection of music may not have much appeal to anyone but an already existing BOC fan. If you are one of those and you happened to miss this one, buy it right now. You won't be disappointed.

Blue Öyster Cult was the thinking man's heavy metal group. Put together on a college campus by a couple of rock critics, it maintained a close relationship with a series of literary figures (often in the fields of science fiction and horror), including Eric Von Lustbader, Patti Smith, Michael Moorcock, and Stephen King, while turning out some of the more listenable metal music of the early and mid-'70s. The band that became Blue Öyster Cult was organized in 1967 at Stony Brook College on Long Island...
