4 stars This is one of the most important prog records: dark, brooding and heavy with keyboards of Vincent Crane in evidence. It is often referred as the missing link between DEEP PURPLE and EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER.

It is also referred as the best offering by Atomic Rooster. The title track balances all the ingredients perfectly while "Tomorrow Night" provided an excellent hit single (UK # 11) that helped the album to established itself in the higher rankings of the charts. "VUG" showcases the amazing keyboard playing skills of Crane while "Nobody Else" discloses an unespected melancholic ballad. "Seven Lonely Streets" is probably the most complete and exciting number with dominating electric guitar (as in "Sleeping for Years").

All in all a wonderful record that is better not to be missed.
