4 stars This is one of my top 10 albums of all time, despite that I only really listen to the first half.

There are 6 songs I really love on this album:

1) Nothin' To Hide A nice transition from a dark folk sound at the beginning to a harder, more powerful piece at the end. I love the bass and alternate harmony in this song.

2) Nature's Way Very soft, but probably my favorite on the album. I love the drumroll on the fours, with almost a gong sound. Good tune that's very catchy.

3) Animal Zoo More upbeat and lively. Almost sounds like it could be Steve Miller Band in the beginning, but brings originality later. Another catchy one.

4) Love Has Found A Way Very recognizable opening that gets the listener's attention right away. My second favorite on the album. Sounds like a late 50's or early 60's song mixed with Tull.

5) Why Can't I Be Free Short, but classic. Sounds like middle-era Beatles. Memorable despite the simplicity.

6) Mr. Skin I changed my mind. This is my favorite on the album, and one of my favorites all time. So catchy-one of those you sing everywhere you go and can't get get it out of your head no matter what.

I LOVE this album, but because the second half isn't great, I gave it a four. If you've never heard it, get it. NOW!
