4 stars This particular album is not as bluesy, (yet there's a few bluesy moments) and not as heavy, (yet there's a few heavy parts) as their debut. What you do get is the beginning of their classic sound, tight playing that begins to get razor-sharp and delicate harmonizing that only they can do. To me, what seperates this album from the rest of their efforts is the sheer number of instruments they use. Almost everything except for the kitchen sink. Maybe not as classic as "Freehand" or "In A Glass House", etc., but you will come away knowing that there's not another band on the planet that can sound like they do and do it well. 4-stars!
