Review by Progbear
2 stars Pretty weak, a mix of commercial hard rock and bland pop. Sort of like one of Steppenwolf's worse albums, but with some ill-conceived commercial pop tunes also stuck in there. As a result, very dated sounding for 1980, in spite of the presence of guest keysmen adding synths here and there. The only thing that really sticks out here, apart from the quote of "Icy Weather" on "Hover Over To Dover" (you might want to wait a bit longer for the self-referential thing, guys), is "Iron Butterfly", which is of course a take-off of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".
