this is it.boc at their best.wonderful sound and production.and classic stuff like "golden age of leather","godzilla" and "nosferatu".beautiful ballad "i love the night" is one their best mellow sides.great album

I absolute love "The Golden Age of Leather" with both Buck and Eric singing on the same track. Sure wish they'd do that more because their contrasting styles play off each other beautifully. Like those old Steve Perry/Gregg Rolie trade-offs on late 70s Journey records. (But that's another story.) Lots of great songs on "Spectres" will haunt you forever. "I Love the Night" and "Nosferatu" are darkly beautiful. "Going Through the Motions" sounds like The Cars. "Godzilla" is a work of genius.

Solid from start to finish; from the tongue-in-cheek Godzilla to the rollicking Golden Age Of Leather, hypnotic Death Valley Nights, rousing Fireworks, inspiring Celestial The Queen, absolutely gorgeous I Love The Night, and on to a triumphant finish with the haunting Nosferatu, BOC puts together their most inspired work in my opinion... Not a dull moment anywhere to be found...

From: Joe Date: May 28, 2003 at 3:25
Probably the best harmonizing the band has ever done. A mellow album by BOC standards, still has a couple of crunching songs and some extremely well done "mello" songs.

From: freddy de keyze Date: May 31, 2003 at 10:47
Yes, dear Koogles, B.O.C. is a wonderful band, and they wrote and still write some fab tunes ! Godzilla is indeed genial, I agree fully with that statement. Wish there were more great, unique bands like B.O.C. ! And to all young guys who don't know this band that well, checq them out. You couls be pleasantly surprised, because on every release of 'em there are mastertracks, seldom heard !

BOC never compromised, no compromise here either. Just fun, heavy ear candy.

From: Remastered Reason Date: April 2, 2009 at 5:28
Attaining commercial success previously because of "Don't Fear The Reaper", the band found themselves at a crossroads. The heavy grind of "Godzilla" is obvious ear candy and carried on their traditional brand of sci-fi, biker metal. Also, the slightly charming "Golden Age of Leather" offers some good guitar work and dual vocals. "Going Through The Motions" is an outright attempt at a hit single, yet is slightly catchy with it's harmonious drum & synth beat. The simple but appealing "R.U. Ready To Rock" is a striaghtforward barroom boogie romp. However, the hypnotic Buck ballad "I Love the Night" is a very creative tune that captures the imagination in an almost nightmarish love affair tale. Finally, "Nosferatu" is typically creepy BOC, but effective. Overall, some great tunes & some not so great but worth a spin often for the best tracks.

Nice album that contains great songs in the shape of "Godzila"(classic!),"Deat Valley Nights","R.U.Ready 2 Rock","Celestial The Queen" & "Goin' Through The Motions"...enjoyable stuff...80/100
