4 stars After the rupture of the Zombies, their two maximum authors, Rod Argent and Chris White (this last one would move away of the instrumentation and would occupy the position of producer and composer) formed next to the vocalista and guitar Russ Ballard (ex- The Roulettes), the battery Bob Henrit (ex- The Roulettes) and the bear and cousin of Argent Jim Rodford, the denominated formation Argent, a bet begun by this remarkable pop work with reminiscencias Zombies. Without reaching the absolute perfection shown in "Odessey & Oracle", yes that a good handful of melódicas songs characterized by the omnipresent loudness of the keyboards of Rod unfolds, the warm one and varied vocal execution of Ballard, the care in the vocal adjustments and the good rythmical work of Rodford and Henrit. Although the most popular subject of the disc is "To roll", a piece written by Russ Ballard of disquieting compass of I put blues, that was able to enter high positions of the American commercial lists, this one is not far from it the most remarkable subject of the album, gems like "Be Free", "Schoolgirl", "The feelings inside" or "Free fall" yes shows to a greater compositivo openwork and a greater seduction in their sonic textures, that will please without a doubt to the lovers of the Zombies sound, although that, with more progressive propensity.
