The album of this British band has a very dynamic, hard-rock (guitar + organ) with clearly progressive influences (including the 9-minute St. John's) the best. By contrast reminiscent of moments Highway Star - Changing My Ways to hard rock classic! A few short recordings (of a total of 10-12 minutes) may slightly deviates from the rest, but the rest no doubt compensate for these moments of weakness.
Very interesting album of British band that combines heavy-progressive, hard rock and Southern boogie, the caller as the allusions to listen to Spooky Tooth, Foghat (especially the album's opening thriller Running Away), and Atomic Rooster (Ode To Clay, for example). Throughout the album, good speed blues guitar, organ passages Crain style.
