2 stars This is a real escape but not so great. Coryell perhaps wanted to revive the psychedelic late 60's spirit and give more space to his vocals, after all, the first album handled them well. The result is a mediocre and forgettable blend of rock, blues-rock and jazz-rock that is very different from the splendid "Offering". The only things which save from being a complete disaster is guitar and saxophone playing. There aren't any memorable tracks although a couple of sections fare well. I for one prefer the mellow moments on the album like the second and third track. It is also one of the least ambitious Coryell albums of the 70's. Only for completionists.
