Count Five - Psychotic Reaction (1966 - rave-up garage-punk: The Yardbirds, The Who)

Count Five - Psychotic Reaction From the review I did on, slightly fixing my grammer:

I suspect the main reason any one even has this album is thanks to Lester Bang's utra-hype. (Note, that the man also loved Lou Reeds Metal Machine Music.)

But, the truth is that this album is a bit of a mixed bag. The track "Psychotic Reaction" is the obvious hit here, it's a bit of a Yardbirds rave-up rip-off, but a good one regardless.

As for the rest of the album? Very few garage bands of this era were able to put out even more than just a few singles, so for The Cont Five to have produced an entire album says something. Most bands who actually were able to put out a full length album, usually filled them with week covers that just padded the hits.

Here's where The Count Five were different, most every song is an original, with the exception of the two Who covers, and there all killer. The two Who covers, "My Generation" and "Out in the Street," are better in their original incarnation, but had only been out for less than a year and the Who weren't sealing many albums in the states. So good for them.

Over all, there's not a whole lot of talent here, but there is passion, excitement, and best of all, variety. On par with bands like The Electric Prunes.

By the way, I think this isn't the original's track list, but that just means there's more songs. Yippie!!
