Despite its misleading title, this is in fact the Edgar Broughton Band's third album. It is, however, their most commercial. That's not saying a lot mind you, as they never were and never will be starlets of the pop charts. They're way too cerebral and provoking for that. That's not to say they're tuneless. Far from it. Get one of Edgar's melodies stuck in your mind and chances are it'll be there for months. But their style and production technique is truly creative. The opening track's a case in point. Spine-chilling strings sweep into an acoustic guitar jangle, laced with sweet, female backing vocals; only for Edgar to growl his way through an account of bird-watching (the feathered variety) from his lonely garret. The obvious comparison is with Jim Morrison's schizophrenic poet/rock-god persona. And that's just for starters. Every track on this album is a classic. All of it is innovative, none is hard going. It is a well-rounded, compelling and ultimately listenable piece of rock/art. A perfect place to start if you're just getting into Edgar Broughton Band, one of the most influential and original, yet lesser-known, bands of the 60s/70s period.

One of my all time top 5 favourite records. An absolute sheer joy. Great guitar solos, beautiful singing and lyrical poetry to die for. Everyone should own a copy for those barmy summer days.

In my opinion, this is the best album the Broughtons recorded. Like another reviewer, it's adult music getting away from the punk noise on other albums, a massive improvement in musicality but most of all decent melodies. They haven't thrown away the basic blues that is the main foundation for their music, sometimes reminding me of Captain Beefheart, but to say it's the same wouldn't be true...... totally unique sound, especially on the opener, "Evening Over the Rooftops", startling but simple arrangement with a performance to die for. I doubt they'll ever surpass this album for it's brilliance.
Remember, this is a very subjective opinion, as all music reviews are probably, but if you're looking back at late sixties into early seventies rock music, try this for a stopping point away from the so called giants of rock at the time. You won't regret it.

Years ago when I bought this I thought this was a bit of fun. After Wasa Wasa I was ready for anything. This really is good I've nearly worn out my vinyl copy and now on my new music system in my car the CD sounds superb! Should be rated as a classic both lyrically and musically. Great Stuff !!

Ah Edgar Broughton, i had great fun watching you try to play a free concert in Preston Park, Brighton and being forced to play from the back of your van with the local constabluary in hot pursuit many moon ago's. Yet, to put it mildly those first two albums stank! badly recorded, half written tracks, a lot of mumbo jumbo and self indulgent. Didn't bode well for the third album and yet the band pulled it off because this is just great stuff from beginning to end 'evening over the rooftops''mad hatter'(with extended jam) and the evergreen 'call me a liar' everything is reigned in tightly and all the silliness left on the studio floor, even the girlie voices add to it. I'm surprised it isn't regarded as a classic. The only downside is the sickening cover,dead carcasses don't exactly draw you in. Still this is the album to start off with and then the follow up 'inside out'.
