4 stars "Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory" is a worthy follow-up to "The Low Spark of High- Heeled Boys", though it's somewhat weaker that its predecessor. There are only five songs on the album, the strongest of which are in my opinion the title-track, rich in time changes and lively percussion, the long "Rollright Stones", with great vocals by Steve Winwood and the instrumental "Tragic Magic", written by Chris Wood and as such leaning quite heavily towards the use of saxophone. The poignant, heartfelt closing track, "Uninspired", is also quite good, while I'm not too keen on the melancholy "Evening Blue" - but I suppose it's just a question of personal taste in this case. Overall, a very enjoyable effort from a band that would unfortunately split up only a year later.
