You'd normally go for one of the big singles and The Slider s got a very slow, lazy groove thing. It's just great. It's just the sexiest track". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Attention to details is important to me and many vinyl enthusiasts out there. That said, the vinyl itself is top notch and sounds warm and crystalline. I bought The Slider when first released at a time when I was drawn to albums intuitively without having heard them first, and it became the soundtrack to a Spring and Summer fillled with teenage angst mingled with hope and possibility.
I'm new to the T Rex Bandwagon. Can't believe that. What a genius, and Slider is one of his finest albums. It's a 5 star album but I had to rate this 4 stars because when I listened to it on my stereo it sounded distorted. When I looked at the meters sure enough everything was constantly in the red.
Could not have been recorded that way so I'm sure when it was remastered, they Album) the race of trying to be louder than everyone else. Music is supposed to have dynamics. Sorry to criticize, but whoever made the decision to push everything into the red constantly made a mistake. That said the music is so good I would still purchase to have in your collection.
And I would definetly get Electric Warrior as well. BUT this one except for a few tunes, I really like this album. You can hear the influence of David Bowie and Roxy Music. Marc Bolan's voice is odd to listen to at first but smooth and as a female, I find it sexy. The rifts and originality to the tunes is something you can get used to so if you stop listens for a while - it will be a nice and familiar when you come back and say, 'why did I stop listening to this?
The songs on this album are just as memorable. One person found this helpful. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I'm not even sure why Amazon would require a written review of this record.
This is Marc Bolan. Just the fact that it exists should cause Album) automatic 5 stars to be Album) for every copy sold. This record is as close to rock perfection as the gods could allow to exist on earth!! Marc Bolan is at his best during this time, and there's not a single track on this that could be seen as filler at all.
