4 stars The best Atomic Rooster album IMO and definitely the heaviest. Though the album has some progressive rock elements and can be put into that genre, it is done in a very heavy Black Sabbath-ish tone and is mostly considered Hard rock/heavy metal. Vincent Crane's keyboard playing is outstanding. He really shows how good of a musician and songwriter he was. This album is one of the heaviest progressive rock albums in history and one of the best (May even be considered one of the first Progressive metal albums). "Death Walks Behind You", "Tomorrow Night", "Sleeping For Years" & "I Can't Take No More" are hard rock treats and "Vug", "7 Streets" (with the very heavy organ intro) and "Gershatzer" are prog/metal classics.

If you enjoy Rush, Dream Theatre and other groups that play heavy progressive rock and also like the hard rock/metal of the 70's such as Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and you don't have this album yet then you have an album right here that you need in your library. Book it!
