T. Rex: T. Rex (Reprise RS 6440)

Todd Everett, Rolling Stone, 22 July 1971

AMAZINGLY, IT all comes out rock and roll; there's no questioning it. But rock and roll with lyrics dealing with such subjects as wizards, Druids, and a Liquid Poetess in a buckskin dress. Bolan is clearly infatuated with mysticism, as well as the pure sounds of the English language.

Total word count of piece: 452
