4 stars This album has some of the most rocking swirling organs I have ever heard by the amazing Roy Sharland, who unfortunately never really did much that I know of.

The Guitarist (Graham White) is an amazing player who also unfortunately did nothing after Fuzzy Duck, if he did please tell me, because I've searched his name for hours.

Paul Francis, happens to be one of the funkiest drummers I have ever heard from a hard edged rock group, great use of pretty much everything, and his drumming just really stands out.

and last but not least, Mick Hawksworth, This guy really is one of the smoothest bass players I have ever heard and he really made my day when I heard this album for the first time.

This album starts off with the funky and rocking' (Time Will Be Your Doctor), funky drum riff takes off to perfectly accommodate the rocking' main riff, they brake off into a nice funky hard Latin groove, then the song just fly's with amazing vocals, guitar fills, swirling organ solos, and everything that makes a song unforgettable.

Mrs. Prout slowly works its way up to the top and then explodes with that driving fuzzy duck force, beautiful and haunting lyrics, and a great vocal job, I also dig the use of accents a lot.

"Just Look Around You" Is a lot more average then the other songs, something you might here from deep purple, but I dig The Duck more then Deep Purple, so yeah....On we go!

"Afternoon Out" is definitely the darkest song on the album, frightening and remorseful vocals, with imaginative and dark and remorseful lyrics, "Your works been done you've had your fun, Now leave!" It gives me chills every time.

"More Than I Am" is a funky rock song similar to a Purple tune as well...

"Country Boy" is a 6 minute example of perfection, thick awesome riffs, harmonized guitar licks, nice organ parts, one of the best guitar and organ solos on the album, and a really nice drum fill at about 3:04 on the song, this is definitely just one of my favorite songs on the album.

"In Our Time" is a rocking' tune with a beautiful bridge, more of those great swirling organs, and pretty nice guitar solo.

"A Word From The Big D" when my old friend put this song in, we laughed so hard for like 15 minutes, its hilarious amazing, I have no idea how Roy Sharland did the duck thing, but way to go! This song is the Fuzzy Duck theme, and is really worth the listen.

The Bonus tracks are complete crap, the production is lame, no one is playing very well, and even Mick Hawksworth sounds lame.

So basically I give this album 4 stars, for its amazing ness but its not quite perfect, few songs are weak but still deserve a listen, this band is one of the bands that should have made it in some way, at least to the popularity of Caravan, If this album was properly distributed I know for a fact they would have made it and released more amazing albums, probably stuff even way better than this.
