5 stars Yes this is along with Fairyport, Wigwam's best album. Their heads, especially Jukka Gustavson's, seemed to be smockfull of ideas at the time and the result was this masterpiece. One word about the whimsy political lyrics, it was close that the mainly left-winged bosses at Love Records in the 70's would not have accepted them, because these are, listen close, satirical aspects on the subject...... Anyway, the music is excellent, and the band as whole, works best with Jukka Gustavson/Pekka Pohjola related compositions.Not exactly a uniform album, but as it's best SUPERB! Jim Pembroke is an excellent songwriter, more balllad oriented, very good lyrics.....but his influence grew stronger, and at the time of Nuclear Nightclub, THE classic Wigwam was only a memory..........thats' another story, a completely different band.
