3 stars Not a bad album, but being placed between two really great works just isn't at the same level. Even if contains more or less same elements as them both (hard rock, blues rock, some folk-rock and prog rock), the music there is heavier and more straight rock.

With characteristic guitar and keyboards interplays, combined with great vocals, album is quite usual MM album. But it missed some complexity, more elegant arrangements. Concentrated on more rocky side, even so expected melodies are half-missed.

Happily, the band corrected their sound on the next album and recorded possibly their best work. Not a bad music for band's regular fans, this album could not be recommended as entry for newcomers. Much better start from previous or next albums, they both are excellent!
