1 stars At this point in Blondel's history, any semblance to Folk has been abandoned. There was an attempt to make this band soft rock, radio-friendly fare. As this album proves, it was a complete failure.

You get two types of music here; boring soft rock (worse than "Bread" , or more similar to "Lobo") and plastic soul/funk. This is really bad. You could tell that there were some heartfelt attempts like in the instrumental section of "Big Boy", but even those were drowned out by schleppiness.

The attempt obviously didn't work because the album didn't sell very well and the band went on hiatus for many years, after which they attempted a revival, but didn't have a lot of luck with that either.

If you are thinking you might even get a little semblance of their earlier years, where they actually brushed up against excellent Prog Folk music, well don't bother. This is really terrible, unless you like really bad 70's pop.
