1 stars I witnessed a ''Badger'' concert in '73 (they were opening for one of the first ever Purple Mark III concert in Brussels I think). Since memory doesn't serve me at all to remember this event, I relied on their good live album to figure out what it could have been.

Needless to say that this one has nothing to do with it. Even if some soul influence could already be identified during their live album, this one is just a long trip into the Motown mood. Brass, syrupy vocals, weak melodies etc.

Of prog, there isn't a trace. Of good music, very little I'm afraid. To point out one outstanding song from this set is like to look for a miracle. But it never comes of course. I guess that the best advice is to stay far away from this very weak album.

There is no need to have a track by track review since each of them holds the same ''delightful'' sound. A long ''press next'' exercise from ''A Dream Of You '' (the opener) to ''The Whole Thing'' (the closing number). Pure soul music with no feeling at all.

Since I can't really find one single track worth mentioning, there are no reason to rate this album higher than with one solid star.
