  • Even the best domestic pressings always sounded dubby to us - we gave up playing them years ago
  • 5 stars: "The Slider essentially replicates all the virtues of Electric Warrior, crammed with effortless hooks and trashy fun. All of Bolan's signatures are here - mystical folk-tinged ballads, overt sexual come-ons crooned over sleazy, bopping boogies, loopy nonsense poetry, and a mastery of the three-minute pop song form."

Fans of the Meters or people who want to discover the funky side of Robert Palmer should check this one out."

  • This copy of The Dan's hard-rockin' classic from 1976 has the right sound for this music - rich and meaty, with powerful rhythmic energy
  • "Drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie lashes out the rolling grooves on most of the nine tracks, establishing the album's anxious feel, and Larry Carlton's jaw-dropping guitar work provides a running commentary to Fagen's strangulated vocals... These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."
