4 stars Man's last studio album before they split up for the first time in 1977 and fortunately they went out on a high. Sometimes criticised for it's smooth production and maybe it is a little but it works well with the material on this album.

Full of great songs including what was to become live favourite "The Ride and the View" which was to turn into a slide guitar showcase for Deke Leonard. But as much as I like Deke to be present in the Man line-up (He's come and gone a few times over the years) it's Micky Jones who really shines here with some beautiful and fluid guitar solos. This guy is so underrated!

Side 2 (on the original vinyl version) is spot on with each of the 3 tracks being up there with the best of Man, especially "Born with a Future".

Sadly the reformed 80's onward versions of man would never reach such musical heights in the studio although they continued to be an excellent live act.

Nightfly | 4/5 |
