electric warrior hasn't aged as well as the slider.

and the post-tanx stuff is pretty dubious.

overall, pretty awesome as a thing, though, yeah

Electric warrior aged fine

I've always felt that most trex songs meander for like a minute at the end and most of them are under 4 minutes anyway

Has Marc Bolan ever written a bridge? Most Bolan songs are one catchy thing repeated over and over again until 3-4 minutes is up. Works for me, haha.

Used to spin that Ty Segall/Ty Rex cover EP when it came out in 2011 all the time. Liked what he did to some of the more obscure songs.

Other than Tanx it’s hard to think of an album that’s aged better than Electric Warrior.
