For their second (and last) album under the truncated Mott moniker, this British institution rides into glam rock's twilight loudly and proudly (as the album's title suggests). Released in 1976, SHOUTING & POINTING finds Singer Nigel Benjamin and keyboardist Morgan Fisher again admirably filling in for departed legends Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson (a near Herculean task) with larger roles as songwriters and arrangers. The quintet's trademark crunchy boogie intact, songs such as the Faces-esque stomp "To Short Arms (I Don't Care)," the lead-off title track, and the epic ballad "Storm" echo their glory years with enough swagger to satisfy hardcore fans--although neophytes should probably stick to the original line-up's many earlier classics such as ALL THE YOUNG DUDES, MOTT THE HOOPLE, or MOTT.
