5 stars A vast improvement from their debut platter. Still heavily influenced by their west coast pysch peers, the performances have tightened and great experimental ideas were flowing. The LP starts with the magnificent Prelude/The Storm - which lasts for over 12 minutes (Please note that track time listed above do not seem to be accurate) A really unusual piece to kick of an album with, but it works. I'ts so full of atmosphere from all musicians. Crashing symbols, a back wash of noise from the Hammond and unusual sounds from DEKE LEONARD on guitar, making rather convincing seagull noises. The whole track emulates a storm perfectly as the title would suggest. Other highlights include Spunk Box (known as Spunk Rock to the band and fans). A killer riff opens the track followed by some dirty sounding vocals to follow. This has remained in their live set and has been jammed to a jaw dropping length of 30+ minutes! One the whole this is one of the best albums they've done. It really started to define the MAN sound and deserves the 5 stars.
