4 stars This is to me, the best of Iron Butterfly. I enjoyed the whole album, with one exception. That is, "Slower than Guns." It wasn't really a prog related tune like the rest of the album. I remember skipping over it a lot. The best of the bunch, of course, is "Butterfly Bleu." The band took a giant leap into prog land with this masterpiece and threw a lot of new musical ideas at the audience. I just love this tune to no end.

Other standouts are "Soldier in our Town," "Stone Believer," "Best years of our Lives," and "Shady Lady," as well as the classic "Easy Rider."

This one gets 4 stars.
