3 stars This is not as good as their 2 first the 3rd the band begin to search a new direction in a more rock way with the band is moving again in folk rock the style of early 70s Poco & Eagles high days... There s nothing wrong in this... If you dont like album as Desperado (eagles'73) and you are only a progressive rock fan... This album will deceive you... it s normal If you re a 70s folk rock fan ...this album will surprise you and maybe your Fave Beggars Opera record... It depend from which star you listen to it... There s no revolution out here the band style use sometimes prog elements and keyboards but it only can be frustratin 4 prog fans ...that their beloved band as choose to move again...too far from them... Song as 'Freestyle Ladies' and his heavy guitars or the (too) simple & good instrumental 'Morning Day' & the more or less prog 'Classical Gas' R all there for music belovers without frontiers... Some will hate the country vocals in 'Sweet Blossom Vocals' as me but the mid track solo is tasty and the end quite good... 'Turn your money green' & 'Working man' are very good 70s rock songs... This album is all about from where you hear it... If you compare it to their past work this is a little deception (even more for fanatic prog ears) If you listen to it with some Distance & if this was the 1st ever album by Beggars Opera this album will have a kinder review... 'Hey where did you go like that' this was maybe the 1st reaction of old fans... Good album for people who like prog rock as much as other styles in the rock n roll of the 70s...
