Prog Reviewer
3 stars A blend of space rock and psychedelia, the first Kingdom Come album sees Arthur Brown's vocals in fine form but lacks the impact of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown's firey debut - possibly because none of the band's instrumental performances match the explosive power of Vincent Crane's organ from the earlier album. Furthermore, the songwriting seems rather fragmentary, with strong longer tracks but a few short ones which seem underdeveloped - Night of the Pigs is particularly uninspiring with its brash, aggressive tone failing to cover for its shortcomings.

Still, it's a good (if not great) slice of space rock from the more psychedelic end of the spectrum. Fans of early Hawkwind will find a similar musical approach on show here, making it no surprise that later Hawkwind would occasionally cover Kingdom Come material onstage - sometimes with Arthur Brown guesting on vocals.
