2 stars One third arena rock and two thirds mild art rock would be how I would some up MMEB's album chance. The bad news is that the two thirds that isn't arena rock is mostly insipid. The good news is that the arena rock part is surprisingly good, especially considering that the genre was just getting started at the time. A revolving cast of vocalists also detracts from this release having a consistent sound. Also the bluesy groove that MMEB can occasionally rock has mostly evaporated away.

This is a two and a half star album, but I will round down on this one. If you are a fan of the Earth Band, you will eventually want to listen to this. Otherwise, give Chance a pass.
