The Slider exudes confidence to the point of becoming delirious and drunk on Bolan’s own self-regard, careening between bawdy, brash Little Richard lop-bam-booms, weirdo machismo rock, and ethereal acoustic ballads, while line by line Bolan toggles between profundity and inanity, melancholia and nonsense. Metal Guru opens the album with a gush of guitar and Bolan’s mawkish cry, Mwah-ahah-yeeeah. It’s a victory lap as introduction and celebratory whoop-along. While responsible for the birth of glam in the UK, Reynolds argues that T. Rex was too quicksilver for a rock legacy. So while Ziggy Stardust tells a fairly coherent story and ascended into classic album status, The Slider forever eludes our grasp. By keeping their mystery intact, Bolan’s songs emulate his forebears best, whether it’s wondering where the wang dang doodle is at or what a Jabberwocky is.

Lyrically, Bolan's flair for the sublimely ridiculous is fully intact, but he has way too much style for The Slider to sound truly stupid, especially given the playful, knowing wink in his delivery. It's nearly impossible not to get caught up in the irresistible rush of melodies and cheery good times. Even if it treads largely the same ground as Electric Warrior, The Slider is flawlessly executed, and every bit the classic that its predecessor is. Track Listing.
