4 stars As a new reviewer to a site that I have been reading for many years, I would just like to say that I disagree with the negativity towards this album. At the time I remember it being viewed as a disappointment mainly due to the fact that it wasn't a continuation of 'House on the Hill'. 'House' had that trippy prog feel, yet this has a poppy, brassy, feet on the ground vibe to it, as some bands realised that the hippy trippy thing had been played out. There are some wonderful songs (Thunder and Lightning, Stand by the Door) and the lyrics at times have that American country feel (Barracuda Dan, Trombone Gulch etc) Howard Werth is in fine voice and all musicians are on top of it. Whilst I now find the first two albums dated and unlistenable, and I agree that 'House' is Audience's finest moment, this is a very werthwhile (not sorry) album that does not deserve the bad rap.
