3 stars Atomic Rooster's second album saw the band leader, Vincent Crane, suffer the loss of every other member of the group, even the highly talentd Carl Palmer, who departed to form a prog supergroup, Emerson Lake and Palmer. This abum is beautiful in its heaviness: you can hear the beginning of what would later on be called heavy metal. It has influenced some giants of the genre such as Iron Maiden and Megadeth. The title track is freakish and amazing: it starts up with a mid-tempo piano section that gives you goosebumps. It builds up from there, and mostly never stops. The only single from the album, Tomorrow night, reached the top 20 on the U.K. charts. There is only one filler here, as Sleeping for years does notstand up to the rest of the album. Fans of the hammond will be pleased, as Crane offers us a steady performance trhoughout. If you like Black Sabbath, Megadeth, you will absolutely love this. While not the most progressive of their career, this is still a great effort.
