4 stars There are no need of having a guitarplayer with a distorted instrument in a rock and roll group! Quatermass is a proof of this,the line up works very well and the music is a delight for at least us who where youngsters back in the early 70`s.It sounds like a mix of beggars opera,deep purple,titanic,atomic rooster and procol harum.The organ is pushed in front and most of the tunes are drenched with it,fat floating chords and jazzy solos,the bass has a wide sound like it use to have on old recordings and drum solos was discussed in the schoolyard. After many years i played this record the other day and the same thing came into my head as it did back then..the album starts off with impressive songs that are well played ,but as the record spins it almost seems to me that they are running a little bit out of ideas and creativities on some songs.In my ears this is a weak four star!
