5 stars This album is a god-like recording. If you ever want to hear the roots of just about anything heavy, this album is it. It is a dramatic display of band interaction that just seethes as much as it swoops. It's pre-goth. It's pre-metal. It's even pre-prog, yet it has all those elements and more. Cream and Iron Butterfly were the heavy bands of the time, and neither could touch the class, dissonance, or precision as well as looseness that Vanilla Fudge had, especially on this album. It even has elements of pre-emo stuff. This is my all- time favorite VF album, and damned if it doesn't come close to being my favorite album of all-time. Prog fans, check out the band who spawned Yes, Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Heep, Grand Funk, Sabbath, Angel, and so many more, on this, their finest moment. You will not be dissapointed. That was the understatement of the year!
