Although such future Blue Oyster Cult releases as ON YOUR FEET OR ON YOUR KNESS, SECRET TREATIES, and FIRE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN would be more commercially successful, the band's first two releases, 1972's BLUE OYSTER CULT and 73's TYRANNY AND MUTATION are considered true metal masterpieces. While both albums contained several tracks that would become concert and fan favorites over the years, neither contained a true radio hit. Instead, each album was meant to be listened to as an entire piece of work, which made sense since both did not contain a single weak moment. In 1999, Mobile Fidelity issued both albums on a single 24-karat gold "audiophile" CD, which boasted superbly improved sonics. Both albums benefit greatly from the remastering--the dreamy space-rock of the self-titled debut is even more consuming, as proven by the standouts "Transmaniacon MC," "Before the Kiss, a Redcap," "Then Came the Last Days of May," "She's as Beautiful as a Foot," and "Redeemed." TYRANNY AND MUTATION was more heavy-metal-based than the debut, but just as gripping--"The Red & the Black," "7 Screaming Diz-Busters," "Wings Wetted Down," "Hot Rails to Hell," and "Mistress of the Salmon Salt (Quicklime Girl)" are all outstanding.
