4 stars I'm not sure this belongs here but this is one of the better hard-rock coming out of Belgium, but also of continental Europe. This resembles all sorts of band especially in the Energy Dept: Purple , Rooster , Heep , Birth Control etc.... One must hear how The Party rocks to believe . The sad story of how such a precious album got wasted in the dustbin of time.

2 stars Frankly, this is really nothing special. Your typical very early 70s organ driven hard rock. In some places, it reminds me of the Rod Evans Deep Purple, except you don't have virtuosos like Blackmore & Lord bringing the band to the top level. If you're looking for something like that era of Purple, you are better off getting Captain Beyond's first album. Now, it's not to state that this is horrible album. But it is typical of groups that barely made a living as opening act on those hard rock tours. Competent playing, some derivativeness, some showcasing your band's musical star (guitar/singer/keyboardist) , but nothing that you won't forget right after you've listened to the next thing. So unless that era's hard music is a compulsion, best save your money on this one.

3 stars I mentioned already in my review of the first "Machiavel" album, that Belgium was a desert in terms of rock bands. "Irish Coffee" might well be an oasis in the midst of this. Like other few legendary ones : Kleptomania, The Pebbles, Lager Blues Machine, Jenghiz Khan, Wallace Collection...almost only known in Belgium only (except Wallace of course who had a HUGE hit in 1969 (it was number in TWENTY countries and will pave the way for ELO).

Irish Coffee disbanded after the death of their very good keyboard player, Paul Lambert.

This album features, indeed great organ throughout all the numbers (but the intro for "Can't Take" is one of the finest moments available).Really close to Jon Lord's ones. The link with Purple is also valid with the vocals. Similarities with Hughes during "Cant Take" and "The Beginning Of The End". It features a BolÚro-like intro (one of my fave number on this album), really close to prog.

It is true that "Irish Coffee" sounds almost like a hard-rock band but not only. The closing number, for instance, is more "Mark I" oriented. Somewhat psychedelic.

This is a good album. A rarity to discover if hard-rock is your taste (or heavy-prog as it is now accordingly categorized on PA). Three stars.

3 stars For my money this is a very good piece of early heavy prog. It's in line with the style of Deep Purple, Atomic Rooster, and many of those, with a distinct early-UFO twinge to it in many of the tracks. A track such as Can't Take It is very heavy, and a number that any hard rock fan wouldn't hes ... (read more)

5 stars Recently on a buying trip to Brooklyn I scored a bunch of great records, both originals and reissues. The reissue of this album on Akarma knocked me cold, and continues to every time I play it. Belgium had an underrated and fantastic music scene in the early 70s, but Irish Coffee are the most ...
