4 stars I was really surprised with this album as I would be sure this album would have been lame or at least not particularly good. After all, this was a reunion album (Fred Glickstein, Jerry Smith, Ron Karpman with new guys, including a new violinist replacing Jerry Goodman, who after gaining greater success with Mahavishnu Orchestra, probably didn't feel t he needed to rejoin The Flock). Inside Out finds the band without a horn section, and the band exploring a more traditional prog approach which I actually find appealing. The blues and jazz seems absent this time around, so it's very much a prog album. The vocals aren't to everyone's liking, but you can say the same of their first two albums as well. Keyboards are something new as there seemed to be plenty of Mini Moog and ARP String Ensemble to be found and I thought the addition of keyboards gave the band a new twist. Sure it's not like their first two albums, but more in the vein of traditional mid '70s prog rock. Another one of those albums that took me by surprise, but if you want more of that bluesy jazzy approach to horn rock, you'll be disappointed.
