3 stars I'm afraid this album is mislabeled. This album is heavy rock proto metal in the vein of Trapeze and Black Sabbath. Not too progressive, not too Kraut, a one off almost classic. Catchy riffs combine with groovy, funky, heavy, chunky bass and percussion Vocals are uniformly strong, but the lyrics are basic and tiresome.. Still, a strong obscure acquisition for inclined parties.

"Mental Block" is my favorite tune on the album, this one hits hard.

I like this album better than other, better known albums of similar style from groups like Spookytooth and Budgie. In addition, i prefer Dirt Box to other "cult" or "underground" records of this ilk from the '70's like maybe Agnes Strange or Necromandus. The cover art is interesting and the cheese factor is high.

Good beer drinking music for the back porch
