4 stars Another album, another change of personnel for Atomic Rooster. Vincent Crane still leads the band, but this time around it is with Chris Farlowe, the soul and r & b singer tranformed and revitalized here. Rick Parnell on drums and Steve Bolton on guitars are rounding the third incarnation of the roost. Crane builds on the funk groove of the precedent album, In Hearing Of to a more concise and effective sound ( one song over five minutes, the album opener ''Time Take my Life''). As on the first album, the orchestration is a flaw, not working vey well with the sound of the band, especially on the opener. What is worth noting is that every memeber except Farlowe has written at least 2 songs, wich brings to the variety of styles: Parnell with his hard southern rock approach and Bolton with more melodic moments( see Nothing to lose). Mostly Roost's last good album, and maybe their best. It is also the one wich is the closest to a progressive album, but still close to a hard rock one.
