Angel is the eponymous debut album by the rock band Angel. "Tower", the keyboard-heavy opening track,[3] was used widely during the late 70's and early 80's by Album Rock stations for various advertising purposes. The track is also on K-SHE radios Classic List.[4] This album can be seen as representing the band's early progressive roots, with Helluva Band seeing the group starting to move towards an increasingly hard rock-oriented sound. Tracks 6-8 segue to form a 10 minute mini suite.
