3 stars In this late album by AR, they root further in funky rock. Listening to all AR albums in a row is a curious experience. You can see a bunch of adaptable beasts, moving at every album so fast that you can hardly classify them. Contrary to fans of early AR, I don't see much Prog in any epoch. AR and Crane always was a Funky Rock based band that wandered and stepped on different musical gardens, although timidly. This Nice'n Greasy that dresses such an awful cover contains a bunch of more than decent tracks worth the listening and well suited for the lovers of instrumental Funky-Rock. Take one to Toke and Ear in the Snow are gems of the style. Who said this is not AR? I think this was their essence always. If anything it was in the Death Walks Behind You and In Hearing Of that they step out for a while, but not far away, and they were late and did not contribute anything new in those two of the most creative and innovative years for the music of all times. The attempts were not very successful. Actually, they were rather naif. This one is genuine funky rock, and very good indeed.
