3 stars This was EPSILON's debut album released in 1971. It's one of those albums that certainly has it's moments, just not enough of them. Still I think it's worth 3.5 stars.

"Two-2-11" sounds really good to start with those guitar expressions.The bass throbs and the drums also help out before the organ kicks in. It settles down when the vocals arrive. It kicks back in before 3 1/2 minutes before settling back again with vocals.Themes are repeated. A change though before 5 1/2 minutes with piano but it lasts just over a minute. "2-Four-4" also starts off great with that organ work as vocals join in then guitar 1 1/2 minutes in. A calm follows and reserved vocals join in. It kicks back in with organ and drums before settling back once more with vocals as contrasts continue.

"Everyday's Pain" is uptempo with organ, drums and vocals standing out as the guitar comes and goes. "Before" opens with piano and a beat as the organ comes in. Vocal melodies before 2 minutes. "Between Midnight" features piano and a light beat as strummed guitar then vocals join in. This is fairly laid back. "Paint It Black Or White" honestly sounds like a combination of GENTLE GIANT and THE ROLLING STONES. The sound goes back and forth between sounding like those two bands. "Hurry Up" is like a boogie-woogie tune with rough distant vocals.
