Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars Like ''T2'', this heavy band has acknowledged some revival much later than their debut album. In their first release and there were apparently more material available from that period. They will see the light some twenty years later.

The band showed some tendency to develop a more melodic music than their usual trio based counterparts of the era. The title track for instance, is a combination of pure heavy blues-rock with melodic passages. It is strange to listen to this though. Not really expected, but pleasant. It is the most interesting track form this record and the only one unfortunately to show this.

Most of this album is basic rock music, with no prog elements (being heavy or not). Not bad at all, if you are into these early seventies sounds (like I am), but quite conventional (''Pick Up'' and '' Bottom Of Your Soul'').

There is even a full ''Velvet Underground'' inspired track under the form of ''Back on The Road Again''. I'm far to dislike it of course, but it is quite strange to discuss this on PA.

To be honest, apart the good opening song, this album doesn't hold any counterpart. The music sounds a bit more polished than the songs released in '71, but they remain left over as far as I'm concerned (''Vagabonds''). The band is also investigating sothe jazzy/funky beats: some trumpets adding to the feeling (''When I Call Your Name''). You might know that I'm not at all a fan of these sounds. Press next.

Some straight good rock music with ''Waiting for the Day'' is the last decent song from this album saved from the vault. Not really essential by any means. Two stars.
