Retronaut Selects: Rox - Rox (1981)

Published on 31 May 2021 at 14:35

I found this album for a few bucks at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ! I remembered seeing the cover on Discogs in the Recommendations section.

When I found it at Vintage Vinyl, it was the first time I'd ever seen a physical copy of it!

When I got home, I took some time to listen to it, and to be honest, I didn't know what to expect.

This is a really interesting debut album because all the songs are so different from each other, but I think that's what most debut albums are. They're meant to show the listener that this band can do an uptempo song, a downtempo song among other song types.

It's meant to show how versatile a band is, so a debut is always interesting to listen to. You never know what a band is capable of, unless you take the time to listen to more than one song. Everyone knows the hit, but some of the best songs are the ones that aren't played on the radio.

This is a fascinating debut, and the only album ever released by this unique band, so take some time and give it a listen, maybe they'll become your new favorite band!

Essential Tracks: Death Of A Teenage Girl, Cartoon People, Nervous Energy
