3 stars Recorded not long after the brilliant Rhino's, Man slipped a little with this one IMHO. Whilst having some pleasant moments, not all selections are up to scratch. Unusual as nearly all of the previous releases have been so consistent. Certain tracks like Bedtime Bone with it's jazz like time signatures and doomy riffs or the no- nonsence hard rocker Day and Night, are great. Others are not so good. I find Rainbow Eyes too slushy for my liking. A love song on a Man album does not work I'm afraid. Sorry!!

Despite this, on the whole I still like it, simple as that.

5 stars By the time of the release of Slow Motion, Man was riding high on the succsess of Winos Rhinos and Lunatics. By now a quartet, they followed the previous album guidelines and concentrated on well crafted shorter tunes. The opener A Hard Way to Die, one of the best songs they ever made, is followed by Grasshopper. A beautiful and orchstrated classic that is a showcase for Deke Leonards abilities. The rest of the album is sometimes close to rock n roll by Man standards and it really swings! Not a record for anyone looking for long improvisations though, but a real pleasure since it is packed with everything Man is about - exemplary musicanship, fine interplaying and extraordinary singing. Enjoy!
