4 stars I have mixed feelings about this album. FIRST: I love Quatermass's music; brilliantly played, good compositions, nice arrangements, this all make this album a great listen. SECOND: I also love Deep Purple, and Rithcie Blackmore left Purple because he wanted to re-record "Black Sheep of the Family" - Coverdale, Hughes, Lord & Paice didn't want to do it. So he said "I'll do it on my own", and recorded it with Ronnie James Dio for a solo single. He and Dio wrote a song for inclusion as a B-side, and having liked what they did together, Blackmore left Purple and formed Rainbow with Dio; I will never forgive Quatermass!!!! But, listening to this great album, I have nothing but good words about it; it's an "excellent addition to any prog music collection". And I agree with Symphonic Age: this is one of the first albuns in the vein of Prog Metal. Final word: Johnny Gustafsson is one of rock's greatest singers and once was listed as one of his favorite singers by Ian Gillan, who enlisted him to play bass with his Ian Gillan Band - a band that all prog fans should listen to someday.
