2 stars Okay, to be fair this is hardly the same band that gave us such gems as DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and TO OUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN". This is pure 60's British pop. It is not bad pop, however, but it is pop. I think only 3 of the people on this album are also on the later Moody works. "Go Now" was, of course a hit, but none of the other tracks has the same impact. Very 60's, Mersey Beat, bluesy, etc... If it was not for what this band went on to create, this would not be on this site at all. Is it bad? No. Is it Prog? NO! And just about a year later everything exploded. Go figure...
