3 stars Bakery were first known as Deep Purple copyists - that side of their music is represented by the driving heavy organ rock of "The Gift". Then, thanks to their involvement in the Rock Mass For Love, they were thought of as a Christian band - "Faith To Sing A Song" is the only track here that *might* qualify. Momento in fact shows the band to be somewhat more diverse than either caricature. "SS Bounce" represents a fairly straight hard rock style, albeit with audible psych influences, while "When I'm Feeling" is more a country-rock ballad. The longer songs "Holocaust", "Living With A Memory" and "Faith To Sing A Song" display a stronger psych-prog side, with several sectional changes, extended solos, and experiments with different metres. The playing is good, the vocals less so, often out of tune (particularly in "SS Bounce" and "When I'm Feeling"). An extended live version of "Living With A Memory" appears on the Sunbury 1973 compilation, and it's a far better performance than anything on this album. Unfortunately, that was the last Bakery recording to be released.
