PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Not my favorite from Man, in fact it's my least favorite. I don't know what happened, but this came out just six months after Rhinos, Whinos and Lunatic, and that was a rather good album, so I really felt Slow Motion was a letdown. I dig the Mad Magazine spoof (you can see a bit of Alfred E. Neuman's face on the upper left hand corner). Seems that Rick Griffin did the artwork, same guy responsible for the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Quicksilver Messenger Service at the Fillmore West posters, and naturally, the Dead's Aoxomoxoa. He also designed the Neutrons band logo (as they were a Man spinoff), and even the Man logo for Maximum Darkness. I really found much of the material on Slow Motion didn't do much for me. The psychedelic and prog elements seemed to have evaporated, and same for any decent jams, so what on earth went wrong? Not one song left an impression on me, unlike the much superior Rhinos album. Call me strange, but I found their next studio album (and their last for some time), The Welsh Connection a much more enjoyable album, even if it has a reputation as being one of their worst 1970s albums (which I can't agree on). The following album to Slow Motion, Maximum Darkness was also a giant improvement, but to be fair it was live, which had them performing previously released material, plus a cover of a Buffy Ste. Marie song. To me, I give Slow Motion a pass. Love the Mad Magazine spoof, that's about it

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 foll ...

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 s ... (read more)
