3 stars I rounded it off to the upper unit hence three stars. This album is quite a deception and Prpghead describes well the average number but does not mention the overall good-ol'- boy-country feeling this album develops. And since I hate country rock , you will be amazed that I gave that third star. well it is on the strenght of the last two numbers (reminds you a bit of their debut but not quite that good) and the opening instrumental Don & Dewey. Actually further controversy between Beautiful Day and Deep Purple MkII will arise because of that number. It is again clear that the brits stole from thje yankees because if you listen to Lazy on Machine Head , you will see another blatant rip-off of this instrumental pieces. It is clear that Deep Prurple (one of my fave hard rock band ever ) listened to Beautiful Day and copied , but than again , If Child In Time AND Lazy are stolen , this takes a lot of merit away from them as their two proggier numbers were derivative: This leaves the DP Mk I line-up as the most progressive.

Anyway , this album is quite a deception and should be avoided.
