    somewhat underrated piece of work - not top notch for sure but a pretty cool record if you forgive its excesses (which you should people were reaching at this stage of the game). 3.5/5.

      This LP starts with an uptempo light in airy melodic track which includes flute that graduates into a menacing guitar solo. Quite unique with pulsating bass line. Track 2 (instrumental) opens with brass and other orchestral instruments with a brief timing change containing increased horns. Track 3 is also orchestral with a string into and percussive instruments evolving into psych guitars akin to Pictures Of Matchstick Men. Track 4 Blue Suede Shoes is a misfit. Traditional sounding, pass. Track 5 light psych/jazz feel, blues progression. Track 6 Rhythmic R&B progression with a solid guitar lead. Track 7 opens with a solo echo chambered guitar with a volume pedal - Somewhat meandering. Spoken word begins part way through the track. Recommended if you're bored. Track 8 Baby Please Don't Go..an uptempo wild version. Fans of the version by Them "might" find this entertaining. Overall not nearly as good and with 16 minutes dedicated to this one track vs. additional music appears wasteful. As with their first LP this LP also suffers from a lead vocalist that should consider a replacement. It's the anchor that weighs some of the music to below surface level.
