4 stars Passport debut album is pure jazz-rock of its time - heavy on keyboards, filled with Doldinger's sax soloing over bluesy-rock psychedelic sound. The music is very precise, quite melodic, in moments has same atmosphere as early Focus' recordings.

Still strongly based on psychedelic blues rock roots (but with big doze of jazzy sound yet), this album could be placed between early jazz-rock classic releases. Some moments are a bit to mellow for me, I believe Passport's best album is still ahead (for me their top release is obviously Cross-Collateral (1975), but this debut release is possibly next best Passport album ever.

It's a bit pity being so long-living band, Passport has in fact really very short history of interesting releases. Starting from 1975 they very soon became Klaus Doldinger pop-jazz project.

My rating is 3+, rounded to 4.
