October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

THE most underated band of ALL time...brilliant Budgie

From: MELODIC ROCKER Date: September 18, 2001 at 17:49
One of the most over rated bands of all time - could never really get into this Shyte. Pass.....

From: frank Date: September 18, 2002 at 14:03
kissass rock all guts just plain an simply

From: Mr Tripi Date: November 15, 2002 at 9:11
Es tal vez despues de black sabbath y deep purple una de las mejores bandas de hard rock en la historia.

From: koogles Date: February 28, 2003 at 2:20
A lame duck disguised as a small bird. Once you get past the nifty Roger Dean covers and the quirky song titles, there's nothing to Budgie but hollow riffs and poor production. "Breadfan" is okay, but this CD doesn't have it. (Nor does Budgie for that matter.) The most over-rated under-rated band ever.

From: Jim Sullivan Date: June 6, 2003 at 13:59
Take a plain-looking woman with good humor and strong sex drive. Some folks never get past the plain looks and never find out about the good stuff. Budgie is kind of like that. They never quite got the whole package together, but there are some marvelous bits and pieces. More heart than most HM bands - depth of thought in songwriting - not just cockrock or devil worship crap (witness "Parents" - any other band ever write a song PRAISING their folks for trying hard to raise them correctly?)

"Impeckable" & "best of" are great! These guys need to be documented...too important a part of modern music. They've been covered! The originals are more important.

From: DR DOM Date: October 8, 2004 at 19:44
Budge, I have all their Cd's their So rare! Now I heard they are going to re-release them all! Thats great More people need to hear them. Budgie was a great band.
