2 stars Vanilla fudge is once more in the likes of so many island based groups, lacking focus and reflecting scattered songs.

The album by Atco was unprofessionally recorded and taints this album. The album begins with a very basic title yet the drumming stands out as much more progressive but not much different to any of the servant lineaged drummers found in groove albums in the same era that also recorded to the same quality as mentioned about this group. This parallel has to be observed since the group members are from island area yet once more using servant lineaged light.

The progressive sounds they did decide to record were casted in the future, and this the correct distancing to how an island based lineage has to reference their sound or else it is a conjured mess, yet the light is referenced from the servant not this group. Many groups decades later decided to venture into the same drumming sequences this group had performed--and all these groups in the progressive distance will not rate past 2 stars.

As a group this band is not very progressive since they had a commercial success that was aired on the Ed Sullivan show. Once more showing support for the island influence rather than the mainland reference. It is a performance based show that is the focus of the band not progressive sounds.
