Bedside Manners Are Extra is the second album by Greenslade, and like the self-titled debut this one too features art work by the great Roger Dean. Once again we are given keyboard-dominated progressive Rock in a somewhat similar style to that of Rick Wakeman and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, though Greenslade is somewhat "lighter". The opening title track is not too exciting, but the Pilgrim's Progress is an excellent number.

As I noted in my review of the band's debut, I like Greenslade but I don't love them. I think their albums are good, but none of them are great. Personally, I think this second album is preferable over the first, but only slightly so. I enjoy this music, but only a few of the tracks manage to excite me and leave any lasting impressions. It is good, neither more nor less.

Recommended for fans of keyboard-driven progressive Rock, but there are better albums of its kind
