1 stars I was surprised to read from a fellow reviewer that this album had been made in 1974 but delayed because of various disputes. The reason I say that is that the music had declined still further from their 1976 release 'Took A Long Time'. Musically the direction on this release is pretty aimless, forgettable tracks are too numerous to mention and there are probably two or 3 tracks worth a mention ' Easy If You Try', a catchy opener and ' Mixed Up Sensations'. Magna Carta's biggest flaw was lack of consistency but without the ever present Chris Simpson, this group would have disappeared a long time ago. There was better yet to come again fortunately. For completionists only.
