3 stars This is the seventh and final effort of Atomic Rooster, the musical testament of Vincent Crane (who sadly died few years after its release) and in fact the album is generally regarded as a solo effort by Crane.

The album sounds like a cross between later Pink Floyd (it even features the collaboration of David Gilmour) and Hawkwind with the addition of 80s electro-rock (or is that new wave influence?) that sounds today a little bit dated. The general mood is far from what this band has accustomed us to in the early seventies. However the songs are far from awful: Crane's playing is haunting (he even provides vocals); he probably was on a creative high at that time. The only negative remark is that new wave type of sound that weakens the whole impact of the record.

Andrea Cortese | 3/5 |
