4 stars Just recently aquired a nice UK vinyl copy of this one. Being a fan of both DEEP PURPLE and IRON BUTTERFLY, I'd be silly not to check it out.

Great album, very heavy and energetic. Sounds possibly akin to what the mighty PURPLE might have been like if Rod Evans has stayed on. All tracks are loaded with guitar riffs, although slightly repetitive and primitive, they are so well played and consistently changing, it keeps this listener entertained throughout. Nice pysch touches here and there as well, giving it a 'space rock' feel at times.

Rhino and Bobby Caldwell are on top form here, some blistering solos on the axe here and there and speedy, tight and powerfull drumming, give this LP a great energy. I would say more of a hard rock LP than prog. Nevertheless, give it a try!

Really like the colourful hippy style cover to this one. Vinyl junkies might like to know that USA 1st pressing came in a unique hologram style sleeve. Can be picked up on ebay with ease.
