3 stars This album didn't quite fulfill the promises that their previous masterpiece "Salisbury" gave. There are a bit less artistic elements involved, and especially the B-side of the vinyl felt low with spirit. But that cannot be said from the A-side which has the title track "Look at Yourself" as its opener. I personally think this "rock hit" of the group stands better the test of time than "Easy Livin'" or "Lady in Black". Keyboards support the menacing rhythm from restrained melodic perspective, and the lyrics have a good meaning. From the album visitors, Osibisa conjure a nice percussive jungle to the coda's volcanic eruption, and Manfred Mann goes insane at the end of most touching anthem "July Morning". After gazing my distorted face from the nearly reflecting front cover, I also noted the reissue CD of the album with bonus tracks at the local library. The eleven minutes long "Why" is an interesting track to listen, as there are not much compositional alterations on the song. Beautiful rock mourning typical to the band just escapes to very long instrumental playing and maturing the tension for its question left without answers.
