TVD's Daily Wax | T-Rex "Tanx"

Sure, "Electric Warrior" is fantastic. "The Slider" often better than "Warrior" which it followed. But 1973's "Tanx", T-Rex's eighth LP and follow up to "The Slider" didn't fare as well, both commercially and critically. And TVD readers - that's a damn shame and something we're going to dispel here and now. "Tanx" is hookier, catchier and yes, punkier than anything T-Rex released prior. (And that's saying something.) I'm struggling to pull JUST five from this today. So, is it just us or has that double-shot gone right to our heads this morning?
