2 stars My least favorite Atomic Rooster album (though not that bad at all). It went away from their usual progressive hard rock sound and delved into the blues-rock/funk sound for most of the songs. This is a talented band however and their new singer helped to make the change in style a fairly successful one with his deeper, bluesy voice. "Voodoo In You" is a highlight as well as "All Across the Country", a very nice blues song from keyboardist Vincent Crane. "Save Me" and "Take One Take" are also very good songs. If you enjoy blues rock similar to Cream then this is not a bad album to pick up. Prog rock fans should be wary of this one however as it's far far off from "Selling England By the Pound" or "The Wall" and much closer to an Eric Clapton album (a good one however!)
