3 stars Incredible music! Lots of mellotron, keyboard, guitar, bass, trumpet and violin parts, with an incredible speed and energy that makes this album worth a listen. Interesting vocals. Nice rythm changes. Wonderful.

4 stars The third work released in 1974 "Growing". A sense of existence of Alan Bown becomes strong, and it has changed from a symphonic sound to a funky sound. It is a very yborecedebted and a fine work of a psychedelic content. String music is unlimited and is beautiful. Above all, a stout performance is a masterpiece of the charm. I recommends it for electrification Miles Davis's fan.

3 stars Jonesy's third album was released only eight months after their second. And maybe it was released too soon, because I think this one is less interesting. On this album they make even more use of strings than they did on their second and a bit too much for me. The sound on this album is also more towards a pop approach. This can be heard on tracks like Growing and Hard Road. These are not bad pop songs, but will be less appealing to someone who likes a bit more adventure in his music. One of the better tracks are Can You Get That Together?, with great soloing from both guitar and trumpet. The absolute highlight however, probably from their entire career, is the long instrumental Jonesy. It brings us a combination of progressive rock with electric Miles-like trumpet playing. At times it sounds sinister, it is complex, sometimes annoying, but after all a fantastic track. As a whole, this is not their best album. It has got it moments, especially on the final track, but the first and second albums are better and more recommended.

4 stars With this Album ( in Vinyl) , I Grow Up , when i first saw the Reviews & the Ratings i was really disapointed , but after a while , i though that maybe other opinions may be right , in fact it was not ( with full respect to those ) These kind of releases from 1970 till 1978 kept the torsh of progressive living inside of us , and i mean it , cause after this period came the big mess . So , imagine , if yu ask me now how i feel about this album !!! In 1978 i will rate this album , as a musician , and as a prog . fan a 6 stars easily !!! Today ,,,, and i mean it ( still wondering where , Waltz for Yesterday is gonna End ) another 6 stars Hardly !!!! Jonesy , With three perfect releases , Growing // Keepin' Up & No Alternative Had Something special in My Life , and i believe i know Why , So , Do yu ????????
