The last tranche of three gold disc re-releases of Pretty Things albums opens with Silk Torpedo (1974) and Savage Eye (1976), two of their better efforts. That said, neither are outstanding pieces of work, marred by too many anonymous rock-outs and not enough attention to the genuinely creative ideas which crop up along the way. Pretty Things fans, who are the target audience for this series of reissues, will be pleased as usual by the wealth of sleevenotes and illustrations.
