3 stars 3,5 stars really!!!

This album is their third and also their hardest in terms of rocking. Gone is Steve Joliffe and in come more guitars. Please note also that Louis Cennamo from the first Renaissance line-up is in the fold on bass. This album is highly rated among collectioners and early 70's afficionados but personally I think that the second album is much better and suitable for a proghead.

A relatively stunning artwork sleeve enhaces the hard-rock listening bringing you through some not always basic power chords , searing guitar work and good interplay. Hold That Train and the title track being the highlights and so is, in a relatively way, the lenghty live track Riding On The L&N.

Prospective progheads should investigate the second album Mk II before moving to any other album.
