2 stars This is a prehistorically release. The band was of Italian origins and that's the only link with RPI that I can see. This album is a mix of psychedelia and heavy rock. All sung in English to make the link with Italy even less obvious?

I can't be over enthusiastic about this album, even bearing in mind that almost forty years have passed between its release and this review.

Songs are mostly boring. The longest track of this album and opener "Mother Mary" sounds as a joke to me. Some weak drum solo and poor vocals are the "highlights". What comes next is no better: short pieces vaguely psyche ("King's Thoughts"? "Don't You Ever Feel Glad"), jazzy ("Happy Killer") or heavy ("Let The Flags Fly High", "Moon Park Woman") but definitively not very interesting.

You shouldn't be fooled by this inclusion: it holds very, very little to do with Italian music. Some basic rock mood and that's it. The closing "Next Election" features some short flute part and some more constructed music. But nothing too fancy to tell the truth. Two stars is well paid.
