    Blue Oyster Cult struck me as an odd in-between; not immediately catchy (except for a few noteworthy radio singles), but not exactly forgettable (except for a few 'track 5, side 2' stinkers). Subsequently I became a fan many years ago when others were smirking at me belting out "Fire of Unknown Origin" on a road trip to the mall.

    I have also found that folks who are fans of both BOC and Uriah Heep are usually my kind of people. Not sure how that works out, but it does. :cool:

    The pride of Long Island.

    A very idiosyncratic band that was absolutely capable of moments of brilliance.

    I always liked the too-loud flanger on this track...

    Love how they fused hard rock with moments of jazzy/prog sounds, melodic vocals and dark (often tongue-in-cheek) subject matter.

    At around age fifteen they were my very favorite

    BÖC are hands-down one of the best American rock bands ever.

    Love them. They sound like no other band, and that's never been an easy thing to do if you're going to be making and selling records. Their first two albums landed like a sonic awakening for my ears and I played those till they wore out. They were in a space completely different from any other band at the time, and really, that has continued for their whole career... of Evil. (inside joke for BOC fans)

    the first time i ever achieved herbal lift-off was while listening to BOC play, louisville gardens, december 1973, so they are special to me. i think tyranny and mutation is a great forgotten classic record. fantastic guitar on it.

    i was also a big Uriah Heep fan, too.
