4 stars Most progheads will tend to look at this one first, as Carl Palmer was their drummer. He and Vincent Crane came from The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown and Crane was responsible for the extraordinary FIRE (I am the god of Hellfire) with this incredible sonic orgasm reached through the Hammond-ildo orga(sm)n. This album is full of hard-driven hard rock (mainly KB) and many cool arrangements that made AR so much more than a proto HM band that they are so often remembered as. This album has a few tracks where there are killer brass section interventions, which add a little prog charm to it. The mood of the music is in the dark region and follows well the Fire single. For me the highlight of this album is Broken Wings, but all numbers are quite good (no duds, Dude;o))). A good introduction but hardly their better album.
