Gary Thain brilliant as usual. A decade or 4 down the track provides a different perspective. As some have pointed out something does seem missing but what that is seems a bit hard to work out. Maybe not quite as good as the earlier albums but still a damn good album.
Many have stated that David Byron's vocals on the album are not up to scratch. I don't hear it that way. I think that his vocals are outstanding. As good an opener as any on previous albums.

At least quite a few interesting changes in style and line-up will be coming up soon resulting in many more records to discuss and for me to learn about.
