      Budgie's seventh album (1978).

      Like the appropriately more well-known Black Sabbath, Budgie's illustrious seventies output reached its nadir with their last couple of albums of the decade, and while 'Impeckable' is a slight improvement over its predecessor, there's still very little to recommend here to the discerning hard rock fan.

      The style is fairly uniform throughout the album, with only a couple of very predictable exceptions, most (or perhaps least) notably the usual acoustic ballad 'Don't Go Away.' The songs never exceed a medium tempo and are mostly grounded in a tedious bluesy crawl, with only 'Pyramids' and 'I'm a Faker Too' providing some slight upbeat relief before the finale sees the band approach something of their former grace far too late, in the tellingly titled 'Don't Dilute the Water.'

      The remainder of the songs all sound more or less the same, led by the most generic hard rock riffs imaginable, which manage to be catchy even though they're forgotten immediately afterwards. 'Love For You and Me' only scores points for avoiding being a genuine ballad, at least at this early point in the album, but its slower pace is rendered less meaningful by the surrounding material that crawls along regardless of subject matter or intent.

      1. Melt the Ice Away
      2. Love For You and Me
      3. All at Sea
      4. Dish It Up
      5. Pyramids
      6. Smile Boy Smile
      7. I'm a Faker Too
      8. Don't Go Away
      9. Don't Dilute the Water
