4 stars And you know what, when listening this, description "metal", heavy metal probably appeared in my mind too. It simply seems, sounds exactly as these proto, "pre" bands that helped to create it, keeping people warm and ready for this style.

And this is something that I imagine when talking about late 60's and their rock music. Rush of a blood to the head indeed, this is ecstasy of sound and furiosity. Never ending party, head-bang here and there, just rock and literally like a rolling stone, only in harder and much heavier style.

Whew, it's simply perfect in many ways of this word. I can see one, so far only one disadvantage - guitars here are sometimes too drastic, tyrannous to my ears. But hell, I can deal with it easily, I already did, this feeling is mostly (mostly) something from past listens. So even this can little bit remind their later album "...Gates", this performance done with guitars (wild solos and riffs) is better for me. It's incorporating much more elements. And you know, simply it's interesting and also promising album.

4(+), great late 60's almost prog album.
