Consumer Guide Album. John Cale: Guts This is how Island makes up for withholding . release on Helen of Troy, and I think we're better off. As a whole, Helen of Troy is sodden and stylized, and while "Pablo Picasso" and "Leaving It All Up to You" are Cale at his mad best, "Mary Lou" and "Helen of Troy" itself almost drag this compilation down.

8 people found this helpful. Guts is Cale's brightest Island release; its power growing stronger through the decades thanks to hard-edged performances filled with anger, thought, hooks and imagination. Yes, this is thinking-person's rock and roll. No, it won't alienate fans of either Roxy Music or the Velvets.
