3 stars This is the first of the mostly mainstream Manfred Mann rock albums, following those great Mann prog albums, Nightingales and Bombers and The Roaring Silence, but its not nearly as commercial as the albums to follow, and it contains a string of great tracks. If you like Mann this is absolutely a must have, pleasing and catchy, at the same time very fulfilling. 70's mainstream rock, yes, but at its absolute best. Comparable with Fleetwoods Rumours or Eagels Hotel California, it a milestone and should be in any Rock collecters shelf. But as this is PA, and the prog element is a lot less evident, than in Nightingales and Bombers and The Roaring Silence, i will stick to 3,5 star rounded down. Im simply not sure how strong this comes out, if you are here looking for Eclectic prog, like King Crimson, Gentle Gain or Van der Graf.
