Marc Bolan's success was peaking at the time he released The Slider in 1972. Coming off hits such as "Bang a Gong" and "Hot Love," he packed Slider with anthems like "Metal Guru" (also a No. 1 British single), "Baby Boomerang," and "Rock On," built around simple rock & roll boogie riffs but burnished to perfection by Tony Visconti's ambitious production. Still, the album upped the heavy rock factor a notch; only "Rip Off" from Electric Warrior hinted at the blazing power of tracks like "Buick Mackane," "Chariot Choogle," and the meaty title track, a lewd-by-inference mixture of driving groove and hushed, between-the-sheets vocals. The ballads "Rabbit Fighter," "Spaceball Ricochet," and "Ballrooms of Mars" are detailed with dramatic string scores, and reveal Bolan's gift for turning non sequiturs into high romanticism SLIDER - Track Listings 1.
