2 stars Easily the most overrated BÖC album, mostly because of the radio success of the admittedly great Don't Fear The Reaper. However, that track aside, I find little of interest here. It's disappointing to see the band steering away from its more heavy metal sound towards a more radio friendly pop/rock. Even within the pop framework, they would be much more successful with later albums like Mirrors. Side 1 has a couple of redeeming tracks, such as "This Ain't The Summer of Love," which is a fine rocker, but Side 2 is completely disposable. "E.T.I." is widely championed as a great song, but I've always found it completely forgettable. Those of you familiar with BÖC from the radio would do better to start with Mirrors or Fire of Unknown Origin, others should start with any of the three "Black and White" albums.
