4 stars This album certainly is together with Rooster's first two releases to be considered a milestone in early 70's progressive hard rock. There isn't any really weak track on here and songs like "Breakthrough" or "The Rock" became all-time classics. Overall their sound became a bit less heavy than on the previous ones but also more quiet tracks like "Decision/Indecision" and "Black Snake" are showing very well the musical potential of Vincent Crane and his colleagues. The line-up which stayed basically the same as on "Death Walks Behind You" had been completed here with a real lead singer (Peter French) who did his job very well. But as we know the group would break apart before recording of this album had been finished and actually one can hear already that their style would change thereafter significantly into more a funk and R&B vein which wasn't that much highly fascinating for me any longer. Anyway this one was an essential and seminal one in Prog and for sure worth 4 stars!
