4 stars This JA album is recorded still in their strongest period, but the sound is different from their most popular "Surrealistic Pillow" . Instead of acid-psychedelia with some folk and beat, there they play blues-rock based music. Sound is much more clear, plenty of guitar solos all around. Album is better focused and organised. Still some psyhedelia presents for sure, but generally all album is played more in early Zappa vein. All sound is more heavy and more rock.

As some minus I can mention that there are no more so perfect Grace Slick vocals in songs,I think their best works were "White Rabbit"and "Plastic Fantastic Lover". There female vocal is competent, but very average. But all the band sounds more as real band, not as few soloists and some musicians on back-up.

Still being sound of their time, album sound more modern. But anyway, don't think it will be too much interesting for newcomers. For fans of that era it's perfect evidence.
