2 stars Greenslade second albums is the hole that sucked all of their awful notes and made a concept album about how they went from hero to zero writing songs. Seriously, this album is unbearable. Bedside Manners Are Extra is from the same year than Greenslade self-titled. But this next step is much more like a heavy stumble. Reading some low rating reviews about their first one, I felt exactly the same, but not for their debut. For Bedside Manners. Even the vocals aren't soulful as before. The first track of the album sounds like a bad song from Supertramp, and it is the title track. These songs are far from their previous works. What a deplorable allbum it is. In my firt time listening to the second Track, Pilgrims Progress, I noticed it has a few good moments, but when I thought it would became good, the song quickly changed and threw everything up. Summarizing, the only good track is Sunkissed You're Not, in my honest opinion. The last track has a funny passage, which reminds me of Aquatarkus. The fact is: I love keyboard/piano/organ based prog. I found pleasure even with some poor albums, only because of the screaming hammond organ solos. How could Dave Greenslade made such a mistake? I feel sorry for Roger Dean.
