4 stars This 1974 release from Welsh band Man has stood the test of time rather well.

Opening with two country-rock tinged tunes with good commercial appeal and some catchy choruses, and continuing with a mellow ballad with some good vocal harmonies, it isn't until the fourth track we get to hear remnants of the style the band is best know for though. Still, these opening numbers are good, and the psychedelic-laden slightly dreamy tracks that follow are equally interesting - with some excellent psychedelic guitarwork underscored by keyboard textures in compositions with long, instrumental passages for tripping out or daydreaming.

The sound is retro, and the album is clearly a product of it's time; but he basic songs are good - making them memorable and interesting tunes even more than 30 years later.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
