1973 "KC"" Prefix Original With The Custom Black Inner Sleeve. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “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 Startling 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. The Black Side Of Tyranny And Mutation Is Its Reliance On Speed, Punched-Up Big Guitars, And Throbbing Riffs Such As In "The Red And The Black," "O.D'd On Life Itself," "Hot Rails To Hell," And "7 Screaming Diz-Busters," All Of Which Showcased The Biker Boogie Taken To A Dizzyingly Extreme Boundary. On The Red Side, Beginning With The Syncopated Striations Of "Baby Ice Dog," In Which Allen Lanier's Piano Was As Important As Buck Dharma's Guitar Throb, Elements Of Ambiguity And Bluesy Swagger Enter Into The Mix. Eric Bloom Was The Perfect Frontman: He Twirled The Words Around In His Mouth Before Spitting Them Out With Requisite Piss-And-Vinegar, And A Sense Of Decadent Dandy That Underscored The Music's Elegance, As Well As Its Power. By The LP's End, On "Mistress Of The Salmon Salt," Bloom Was Being Covered Over By A Kind Of Aggressively Architected Psychedelia That Kept The '60s At Bay While Embracing The More Aggressive, Tenser Nature Of The Times. 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, AMG.
