Blue Öyster Cult On Track is a song-by-song analysis of the discography of Long Island's greatest sons, the Blue Öyster Cult. Dubbed "the thinking man's heavy metal band" and celebrated by critics, fans and musicians since their debut album in 1972, the band carved a unique path in hard rock history by combining chops, humour, occultism, poetry, jazz chords and pop sensibilities. Best known for their FM radio hits "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" and "Burnin' For You", Blue Öyster Cult's discography is in fact a treasure trove of fascinating, ever-evolving music by a band that was never afraid to explore, and never had the slightest respect for genre boundaries. The band's influence stretches from seminal metal bands like Metallica to cult act like Current 93 and their music has been heard in movies like "Scream" and "Halloween" and has been quoted by Stephen King. This book combines the author's analyses of Blue Öyster Cult's songs with insights from band members and people who worked with the band through the years. It is the ultimate companion for a deep dive into the catalogue of a band whose music is both inscrutable, fascinating and rewarding. From the canonized first 4 albums through their controversial 80s output and all the way to their revitalization and comeback in the late 90s, this book treats every era of the band with equal respect.
