5 stars Although a little bit less heavy than their first album, Sea Shanties, their second album is undoubtably the most versatile release in the band's catolouge. There are some very many changes to High Tide's sound on this album, considering that they sort of left behind their signature guitar vs violin battle which they were known for, Hank Hill guitar techniques has FULLY inproved using some jazz guitar licks under his raw-guitar tone wing, it's more in vein of Psychadelic and Folk influences, keyboards are introduced, and that the songs are more longer within the improvisations, and that the jams are a LOT more better. Examples of longer songs are the three main ones (only three tracks on this album because they're so damn long), such as "Blankman Cries Again", "The Joke", and "Saneonimous". This album is definately the lost gem of the Heavy Prog scene and it definately deserves some listening for those who are into High Tide, and/or Progressive music.
