3 stars I remember well when this album came out and it was probably very much the flavour of the day for a USA band to be this inventive ( progressively speaking). 1976 was almost the turning point for a lot of bands for a change in direction yet BOC has only achived this on their fourth album with Agents Of Fortune so were only in the maturation stage to what they would progress with.Others may well have preferred their first three studio releases.

It is a good album but has dated somewhat. It sounded a lot better in the 70's and is more rock orientated as opposed to progressive. Reminds me a lot of Spooky Tooth, especially ' Sinful Love' and ' Tenderloin'. Other good songs are the commercial ' Don't fear the reaper' and E.T.I. Overall though the songs are too short to ever really develop into something grandiose.
