MONTROSE picture
One of the first American-bred hard rock groups to challenge British supremacy in the early '70s, Montrose is remembered as, if not the most successful, then certainly one of the most influential bands of the era. In fact, many of the personalities responsible for the group's legendary, self-titled debut (producer Ted Templeman, engineer Donn Landee, vocalist Sammy Hagar) would later become instrumental players in the formative and latter-day career of the mighty Van Halen. And to his credit, though he ultimately lacked the focus and leadership skills to consistently guide his band's career, guitarist Ronnie Montrose was a true original on the instrument. His superlative playing aside, the avid big-game hunter lived the guitar-playing gunslinger lifestyle long before Ted Nugent made the combination famous.

After cutting his teeth as a session musician with the likes of Van Morrison and the Edgar Winter Group, Ronnie Montrose decided to form his own, self-named

I haven't decided if Hagar ever got to be involved with the making of a five star album. The very best of his Van Halen output is around four, from what I've heard of his solo work, four stars seems about the normal with maybe an extra half star going to one or two of them. I'm sure there are a few that don't get the fourth star, and probably a couple that don't get more than two and a half, but that is sheer speculation. What we have here, though, is the second Montrose album, and a good one it is. This should have been the slight, ever so slight, misstep after a stellar, action packed proto-metal and even a little bit o' space rock debut. There's still proto-metal, there's still space rock, there's still Ronnie Montrose and Sammy Hagar, but there's just a little bit missing. Not much, mind you, but if you draw an analogy to this and the first two Dio albums that would be released around ten years later, it's very much the same. There's a template, see. And there was the thing that made the template, then there was that which used the template to be made. Not much different in a very real and severe way, but incredibly different in the most important way, you know the one where words fail and poets come from the dark abyss to sing the virtues and flubs of all around them. Yea, there, the first one's better because it's original and the second one is nearly as good. I haven't heard the third yet, which is the first without good ol' Sammy, but I'm looking forward to the day that happens. Over all something to enjoy and be like "Wooo! Yea! This is awesome!" about.

Super solid early 70's proto-metal of the highest caliber. Features a very young Sammy Hagar (I've recently started liking him much more than I thought I ever could) being a more awesome front-man than anyone who only heard his later Van Hagar work would imagine. This album and it's follow-up, 1974's "Paper Money" are sure to please fans of the proto-metal. A bit less metal than "RockaRolla" and "Hard Attack", but hey, so is "Lonesome Crow." An album and band that anyone interested in what the earliest snapshots of the glorious force that we call Metal looked like, you know when it had big ears, a cowlick and a crooked, pointy toothed smile and very tiny horns, must hear.
