Blue Öyster Cult: Blue Öyster Cult (Columbia 31063)
Nick Tosches, Fusion, May 1972
NEVER JUDGE a fellow earthling by the way he/she looks; this was perhaps the first lesson I gleaned from the Blue Öyster Cult — upon perusing a photo of the group, I prejudged them to be but nerds. Then I heard the album. Results? Penatial self-flagellation and a Regis Debray haircut.
