The Devil Hits Back Review

by Anthony Tognazzini

British outfit Atomic Rooster is well known among prog rock aficionados as sharing members with iconic acts the Crazy World of Arthur Brown and Emerson, Lake and Palmer. But the band’s own output deserves notice, as the compilation THE DEVIL HITS BACK attests. Collecting singles, live tracks, and rarities from the band’s output in the 1980s, THE DEVIL HITS BACK showcases the group’s hard-rocking side, evincing comparisons to progressive rockers like Jethro Tull and more blues-based ‘70s and ‘80s hard-rock fare.
