Musically, Zevon's stalwart singing and rigorous, razor-sharp piano playing hold down the fort, while Wachtel
, who brandishes an armory of guitars, takes the high ground with such audacity he
nearly steals the action at times.
On "Johnny Strikes Up the Band" (like the second LP's "Mohammed's Radio," a "tribute to rock & roll"), Wachtel
simply picks up the song and carries it away, giving it back only for the vibrant vocals. ...
""Werewolves of London" is one of those indescribable, half-sung/half-spoken, stupid/profound anthems that captures something of a city and a time.
guitar prowling through the rolling fog like Jack the Ripper, Zevon reduces the whole world to a mythic howl, and you feel exhilarated."
He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
Huh! I'd like to meet his
