4 stars This album follows the first of many line-up changes for the band. They actually had 13 line ups in their first 8 years. This must be more that any act ever. This line up is generally regarded as the definitive. Certainly the band was in their hayday in these next couple of years. When this album was released it was slated by the critics for being tedious or too varied. Whilst not being the best they've done, it has it's moments. The opening track Romain, has probably been played at every gig since 1970. It has a very west coast feel to it with its slide guitar and some great lyrics to boot. Country girl is pure country and western. They do a good job in imitating this style although it may nor be to everyones taste. Daughter of the Fireplace is a speedy, hard-rocker with some tasty guitar. The two remaining epics are very experimental. According to the band they were really rush recorded so were never regarded a classics. Despite not being to everyone's taste, I've always been fond of this album, due to it's sheer diversity.
