A fantastic album. Get for the remastered version. It has bonus tracks.

From: masque Date: October 25, 2002 at 13:54
after on your kness..it was time for change for boc .the hits are here now.i was so surprized when i first hear dont fear the reaper.it was so clear that this is one those moments when music and words make unity so strong and powerful that will last forever.im 45 years old and boc was myfirst expirience with heavy thing.the rest of the album is well balanced.but the sheer strenth of first tree albums are something that i will never forget.

A frightening CD. The musical equivalent of a Stephen King novel. (Stephen actually quoted BOC in one of his books, "Pet Semetary" I believe.) Anyway, this is a classic release that takes a few listens before everything sinks in. Not really as heavy as their first 3 albums, perhaps "menacing" or "macabre" is the best way to describe it. But having said that, this is some of BOC's most beautiful music here as well: especially towards the end of the disc.

Spaced out and fantastic are about all I can say for this great album. The whole album takes you to another place, one better to listen to...then to be there.

From: AOR freaky Date: December 3, 2003 at 4:57
Now digitally remastered and still sounding as fresh as twenty years ago ! FANTASTIC band, very original ! Love 'em !

From: Rockhead Date: April 23, 2004 at 4:32
Another genre classic!Featuring DFTR other highlights Vera Gemini, ETI and Tattoo Vampire this is an awesome sounding album that shot BOC into the big time. Timeless

From: Gar Date: April 24, 2004 at 2:06
This was the very first cassette I ever owned, back in the early 80s. The fact that I still love this album speaks volumes. Just one great song after another. From the thunderous opening riffs of "This Ain't the Summer of Love" to the closing strains of the bittersweet "Debbie Denise" this is just classic material. Many prefer "Secret Treaties", but for me this is the best thing B.O.C. ever put out.

From: Date: May 7, 2004 at 15:59
Some good songs, "ETI", "..Reaper". Unfortunately the production is not the best and these songs sound better on the live albums. Not the best band in the studio, although REAPER is still a strong radio song.

From: Lynchomaniac Date: October 14, 2004 at 11:19
A late discovery for me I'm sorry to say, but when I discovered them I was hooked instantly. This one ranks among the bands best moments in my books

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 15:07
Very good classic. I picked this one up after its' release and was sorry I didn't pick it up sooner.

From: Adam Blackheart Date: February 26, 2006 at 12:40
One of the greatest 70's album. Absolute masterpiece. Fullfilled with great melodies, ambitious tracks and (as usual) atomic lyrics. I think that it's close (ok, you can kill me)to Queen's"A Night At The Opera".

From: peter neal Date: January 3, 2009 at 11:31
simply a classic.

From: Remastered Reason Date: April 22, 2009 at 23:33
Previously dubbed as the "American" Black Sabbath, BOC were lyrically much more thought provoking & lightyears beyond their one trick pony plodding power chord counterparts. This record in particular made that distinction & incorporated hard rock diversity, while retaining, if not enlarging their lyrical mystique. Their first massive hit single, the hypnotic yet melodic "(Dont Fear) The Reaper" still gets airplay today, while other gems include "Morning Final", & "Tenderloin". However, for the chill factor, turn down the lights & listen to the haunting "Revenge of Vera Gemini" & the equally jolting but sonically assaulting "Tatto Vampire". Also, the mid tempo, sci-fi fan favorite "ETI" sends you on a journey reminiscent of their earlier works. Really this album has few flaws & is the landmark of their career.

RIP Allen Lanier June 25, 1946 August 14, 2013.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 24, 2016 at 14:29
Classic album that contains 2 of the band's most recognized songs in the shape of "(Don't Fear)The Reaper" & "E.T.I." these ones along with "Morning Final" are my faves...70/100
