Blue Oyster Cult - Tyranny & Mutation (expanded / remastered) (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-SBMK769275.2
The band who basically invented the idea of 'thinking man's hard rock/heavy metal'. One of the great hard rock bands of all time and that's no lie! This is their mega-classic second album and includes four bonus tracks!

"On Tyranny and Mutation, Blue Öyster Cult achieved the seemingly impossible: they brightened their sound and deepened their mystique. The band picked up their tempos considerably on this sophomore effort, and producers Sandy Pearlman and Murray Krugman added a lightning bolt of high-end sonics to their frequency range. Add to this the starling lyrical contributions of Pearlman, rock critic Richard Meltzer, and poet-cum-rocker Patti Smith (who was keyboardist Allen Lanier's girlfriend at the time), the split imagery of Side One's thematic, "The Red" and Side Two's "The Black," and the flip-to-wig-city, dark conspiracy of Gawlik's cover art, and an entire concept was not only born and executed, it was received.... While BÖC's Secret Treaties is widely recognized as the Cult's classic album, one would do well to consider Tyranny and Mutation in the same light."-Thom Jurek/All Music Guide
