Prog Reviewer
2 stars To tell the truth, I have never been amazed by this band. Purely folkish with no prog so far is the conclusion I have come up with after having reviewing their first five albums. To tell you that this one is different is maybe not the truth.

Still, the opening and longest number of this work is quite enjoyable and features some fine mood changes. Vocal arrangements and melody are also on the rendezvous during "Iron and Steel Leader of the Band". But that's how good this album is.

The problem is what comes next: a combo of two minutes' songs with little savor to be honest. Easy listening music, fully acoustic of course. It is quite difficult to take one song out of the spectrum and praise it.

The pop/folk "Help Us Get Along" just adds grain to the mill. But I am afraid that the remaining songs from this work won't take you to heaven. OK, not to hell either because melodies are crafted ("Love Must Be the Time of Your Life") but so childish?But that's how the overall mood sounds about ("Sad to See You Go") for example.

This is subpar "Crosby, Stills & Nash" or "Simon & Garfunkel". But these are of course icons to which "Amazing Blondel" doesn't belong. Two stars as far as I am concerned.
