4 stars Third album of discrete band from UK, Babe Ruth didn't manage to hit big times with previous albums, this one, at least to me is their best, many considered a total failure, Babe Ruth here creats the true heavy prog sound of mid '70's. released in 1975 selftitled, has some good moments, even great in places, like instrumental A Fistful Of Dollars, opening track Dancer. They sound here close to Wishbone Ash for ex more rocking but keeping progressive elements in their sound. Maybe not a great album, but for sure more pleasent and more diverse then first album, and to me their best for sure. Sometimes the voice of Janita Haan remind me of Janis Joplin in places, she did again agood job. While they manage to have a moderate succes in prog zone, they puled some decent albums, one of them is this one. Graced by an excellent cover art, one of my fav btw, make me give3.5 rounded to 4, personal reasons, even the album is lacking in great atmospher for some of the listners.
