4 stars This first Jonesy album was released in 1972. It contains heavy and sometimes dirty progressive rock. They can be compared to bands like Spring, Nektar or Gracious. The album opens with No Alternative. A strong rock song with heavy riffing and good guitar work. Heaven is a ballad with very tasty mellotron lines. The shorter Mind of the Century is another rocker with a prominent role for the tron again. 1958 is the most progressive track, with complex rhythms and good instrumental parts. Pollution is another slow track with some faster parts and the ever present mellotron. The album closer, Ricochet, is heavier again. It has a good melody and is a cheerful song. No surprise this was released as a single. In conclusion this is a very good and versatile album with heavy, not too complex music. And an important part is given to the mellotron, which is played excellent.
