EW reviews two boogie band albums

Cactus were an early-’70s metallic boogie band that started out with starry-eyed notions of becoming the American Led Zep; being cartoonishly crude and rude, they never quite succeeded. Bad Wizard are a present-day metallic boogie band that seems to want to be the new Cactus; being cartoonishly crude and rude, they succeed admirably. Fun suggestion: Place both Barely Contained and #1 Tonite in your CD player and program for random play. Betcha can’t tell which is which!
Barely: B
#1: B+
