Zinc Alloy & Hidden Riders of Tomorrow. Not just the Zinc Alloy album either- I mean, T Rex's entire career. Artists that deserve to be remembered aren't, and yet, an album like Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music receives praise and attention every single day. Anyway, what makes Zinc Alloy & the Hidden Riders so darn good is the way the music takes the glam rock movement and makes it serious by way of dramatic background arrangements and serious and splendid lyrics. Though not on the level of EW, Slider, And Tanx, this is a great album.
At that moment, however, Zinc Alloy marked a downturn in his fortunes – the contemporaneous album single, "Teenage Dream", made it only to No. 13 in the UK charts. While that would be a success for most groups, Bolan had spent all of 1971–1973 enjoying constant Top Ten and Top Five UK hits, including four No. 1s. T. Rex would not enjoy another Top 20 UK hit until "New York City" in the summer of 1975 . In 2010, the US distribution rights to the post-Electric Warrior T. Rex albums were passed onto Fat Possum Records. Retrieved 8 February 2015.
