3 stars Although this fourth album from Jane is a little inferior to the previous three, this is still a worthy album. Fellow reviewer is a bit severe with his rating , but there is a lack of inspiration that is not compensated with the superb sleeve artwork (the same guy who had done the superb III cover). The return of Janko behind the keys did not produce an inspiration rush but this did not stop Jane from selling many albums.

Side 1 is made of relatively 5 short and straightforward rock tunes with no highlight although Music Machine is the better one . Side 2 stars with the much better Lord Love and then moves to the highlight of the album, Midnight Mover. With these two songs , we find the usual greatness of Jane with blistering guitars and great organ lines making for what I call great Prog'n Roll. Unfortunately , this is too short because the album closes with two tracks that resembles the songs on side 1. As usual with Jane, references to similar group such as Birth Control are evident. Both German bands enjoyed quite a success in the mid-70's.

This is yet another good Jane record but may not be the best to start investigating this band .
