2 stars I guess the overwhelming success of LZ4 made the members of the band feel that they had exhausted their supply of straight ahead rock and roll and they felt the need to go wherever their collective imagination would take them. I'm just not sure where that was. What we got was a very strange album that left most of their fans scratching their heads. We didn't want or expect a clone of the previous LP but this was a directionless trip into the twilight zone. I'll just leave it at that. "Dancing Days" and "Over the hills and far away" are the standout cuts included and they got their requisite airplay throughout the mid 70s but I can only recommend this album to the die-hards and those who like extremely experimental and moody meanderings through what I consider average material at best. If you have yet to own one of their albums this really isn't the place to start.
