“Marc Bolan wasn’t a virtuoso, but his intelligent use of the electric guitar, particularly on this album, was a total dealmaker for me. I remember hearing it at somebody’s house, and even on that first listen, I could tell it was a remarkable record. The continuity of it from song to song really jumped out at me.
“Marc intended the guitar to sound a certain way throughout the album. It never felt improvised, but there was still a lot of rockin’ soloing on it. Everything was very tight and well thought-out, and of course, there was the crunchy sound that Tony Visconti got – so perfect. A very important record, in my opinion. It certainly changed me.”
