4 stars This record relates powerfully to my own personal past spent with the classic rock recordings. I think the high spinning rates of the long gone times and constant discussions of the subject may distract from the factual merits of the album. Opening gatefold sleeve with the illustration is really pretty, and overall design of the album the drive of emotions is of fine quality. I remember I heard first time on this album the sensual voice of Sandy Denny, visiting the traditional piece "Battle of Evermore", giving impulse to drill deeper to the charms of psychedelic folk music's legacies. The one of the greatest songs of rock follows that one concludes the A-side is really fine, though the overplaying from many directions has caused some harm for it. These two pieces following the starter's two powerful rockers form a great ride; The B-side has same balance of kicking out the perfectly matured playing skills to a target defined with success in the compositions and arrangement solutions. Along with their 1976 live recording this is the only album of the band I hold with personal value.
