Attila — Attila: The Worst Rock Album in History

AttilaAttila (album)
★★

Are you prepared for the worst rock album ever, also known as “Psychedelic Bullshit”? Or so they say it is, yet gaining the title of the worst rock album in history is already an achievement in itself.

The band only consisted of a duo: a drummer and a pianist — Billy Joel! That’s right, it’s him. They seemed to have this idea, perceived as dubious by many critics, that the only way a pianist could compete in the new age of hard rock was to run the piano through tremendous amounts of distortion and overdrive.

But if you disregard the noise that the piano produces, the tracks on the album itself are pretty nice, especially this one. I wonder how they would sound if they were performed by a complete band, with a separate guitarist, pianist and bassist.
