3 stars For those of you thirsting for the Wyatt years, but who have everything else, the first half of this album is pretty good (with Phil Howard on drums, who is excellent). The second side, though, is when John Marshall joined the band, and it was downhill (except for select recordings) from there. Nonetheless, "As if" is saved (thankfully, Marshall drums more like Howard here than his usual boring style).
