3 stars AUTOMATIC FINE TUNING were a four piece band from the UK releasing this one album back in 1976. A dual guitar led quartet and many mention WISHBONE ASH although this record only has vocals on the short closer. The album is dominated by the massive "The Great Panjandrum Wheel" at over 30 minutes but thankfully divided into two fairly even parts with a short track in between because that's 30 minutes of what I would call one dimensional music where the guitars are just relentless.

My favourite spin of this album was the first one but I tired of this quickly. Now if the guitar was my favourite instrument we'd be talking a different rating but even still I just find that 30 minutes of music to be a composition that is far from adventerous or interesting to my ears. Just my humble opinion and I do prefer "Argus" to this one by a fair amount. The ratings for this one are all over the place for good reason.
