      Budgie's tenth album (1982).

      Oh dear, Budgie discover keyboards and their career grinds to a halt. Coincidence? Perhaps, but either way, 'Deliver Us From Evil' is a decidedly less-than-stellar note to go out on.

      Shiny, sparkly keyboards were a bizarre element of eighties heavy metal, and music in general, and it's disappointing and cringeworthy to hear Budgie's reliance on the gimmick here, which reaches its height in the pop-centric songs 'Young Girl' and 'Flowers in the Attic,' the latter of which is easily the worst ballad Budgie have ever produced, at least until 'Alison' three songs later. Some of the other songs manage to save themselves in a small way through some showy guitar melodies that are quite good on occasion, particularly in 'Give Me the Truth' and 'Don't Cry,' but the rest really is quite awful.

      I'd still rather listen to this than anything produced by an American glam band, but to be honest this Welsh equivalent isn't far off. Although it's deliberately more upbeat in tone than its predecessors, this is the most morally depressingly thing I've heard in some time.

      3. Truth Drug
      4. Young Girl

      6. N.O.R.A.D. (Doomsday City)
      7. Give Me the Truth
      8. Alison
      9. Finger on the Button
      10. Hold on to Love
