3 stars 3.5 stars really!!

As usual , this album holds another line-up change with members leaving to form other bands but coming back soon after their new adventures did not work out. In this case it is the KB player but he will be back by the next album. Fellow reviewer Ian Gledhill is right to denounced the fact that Keyboards are missing bar some piano on Way to Paradise.

Some people denounce this album as weaker because of this lack of KB , but I find I enjoy more tracks on this one than the pevious Here We Are and the following Lady. Many blistering guitar heroics with twin leads is the novelty but this does not change the sound that much and one can spot the typical Jane sound. Again a lenghty opener in Comin' Again makes for a great plunge into JaneWorld. Early In The Morning Jane Session, R'nR Star and Mother makes this album an enjoyable hard-rock with prog leanings listening adventure.

Hardly essentail for a proghead but all early Jane albums can please , but especially those who enjoy similar Birth Control , Wallenstein , Uriah Heep and many more.
