4 stars Second outing from Mr Brown's 70's outfit. Slight personell shift on this one saw fewer members contributing. Still contained the excellent organ and guitar showmanship of Goodge Harris and Andy Dalby respectively, which is vital to the sound.

Although not quite as good as the previous release (a tough one to beat), there are some great moments here. Still the 'crazy' aspect remained, but the overall feel has been fused with very 'anthemic' sounding tracks and a nod towards ballads as well. For example check out Love is a Spirit. This actually sounds relatively conventional, even for Arthur's standards. Much of the experimental side of the band remains though. Like on the track aptly named The Experiment, which features a load of song snippets put together to form one lengthy disjointed piece. Interesting stuff! Guitar solos are more prominent here than the last release, an excellent solo closes the LP.

Not quite as good as the first one, but still well worth investigating and possibly the best LP to introduce yourself if you havent already heard this excellent band.
