3 stars Notice the new Esoteric Recordings' re-release (late 2018) that includes interview-based liner notes and a bonus disc of live tracks. I've grown to like this band more over the years, and I appreciate their vintage sound. I still don't like Lawson's vocals, so thank God they did instrumental tracks almost as much as vocal songs.

Perhaps the second Greenslade album Bedside Manners Are Extra is slightly better in my opinion, but really these two are so close to each other that if you like one you'll like the other too.

(In 2007 I was all too negative towards this album, this "review" being among the weakest I've ever written: "To some this is a 5-star gem, but I'm not very impressed. The songs are ignorable - the best being the opener 'Feathered Friends'-, the dual keyboards that very much dominate the music sound too fuzzy and unclear to my taste. Most of all, the singer-keyboardist Dave Lawson has a terrible 'forced' singing style. The closest band to compare Greenslade is RARE BIRD, only with a worse singer.")
