1 stars The nadir of the arc of a band which hit the height of their powers with The Underfall Yard, looked they might be able to sustain their peak with English Electric One and Two, then proceeded to take a stomach churning nosedive into near caricature with the heinous Make Some Noise, nauseating Wassail, and ill advised attempt at Prog Folk alchemy which only served to fuse the worst aspects of both genres into an ungainly mess. This unfortunate effort takes the cod swagger of yuletide Slade and crossbreeds it with Greg Lake's outtakes, resulting in an abomination which would surely see the band miming with Dave Lee Travis in the background, should Top of the Pops still be on the box on Christmas Day.
