4 stars So classic its lame, so lame its classic

How do you not give a high rating to the album that is responsible for teaching 85-90% of rock guitarists, both pro and amateur, their very first guitar riff. You can dislike it, but you can't deny it. Is it prog? probably not. But when you get right down to the nuts and bolts of the songs, it is really difficult to identify any of the songs as being bad. As a matter of fact, I can't identify one as not being good. The band is a bit less adventurous as in previous albums, slipping into more of their bluesy roots. But the song structures are very strong and withstand the test of time.

In addition, the newly released remaster with remixes and quad mixes is a real pleasure to have.

3.9 stars
