5 stars Having been a fan of the band from the early seventies, I feel I have to put the record straight. This album contains no hit singles and very few of the songs were played live, but make no mistake this is Argent's most consistent record by a country mile.

Recorded in 1971 it finds the band's twin towers namely Rod Argent and Russ Ballard working in harmony and contains a diverse yet throughly absorbing collection that still sparkles today.

This second outing throws off the Zombies sound and identifies the band as a truly original entity that defies categorisation. Prog fans will marvel at Rod Argent's magnificent keyboard solo's no doubt, but it's the songwriting on this album that really blows you away.

CBS had high hopes for this LP on its release and it's still a mystery why such a classic record is relatively obscure. Absolutely essential for lovers of quality music.
