Love Sculpture's second and final album saw a band trying to progress from the relatively standard blues covers of their first release and firing in all directions. It begins with the gorgeous, yet sturdy, other-worldly 'In The Land Of The Few' and 'Seagull'. The trio were fairly heavy and not really into psychedelia, but dipped a toe in here and there. With Dave Edmunds's prodigious, fleet-fingered, often incendiary guitar work to the fore, they didn't need to. With Edmunds around, of course, a Chuck Berry workout is never far away, and with 'You Can't Catch Me', the band don't disappoint. 'People People', meanwhile, is a gentle pop song, one of several styles here that Edmunds clearly preferred not to revisit during his solo career, no matter that Love Sculpture did most of them well.
And then there are the classics. Holst's 'Mars' is pretty brutal, pre-Black Sabbath horror rock. 'Farandole' gives Edmunds another guitar showcase, but is really only an inferior attempt to recreate the effect of the star of the show, a version of Khatchaturian's 'Sabre Dance'. Both the album and single versions are included here. While it's understandable to drool over an eleven-minute version of the piece, the single version is far more effective. While dated in several places, 'Forms and Feelings' is, however, an interesting, dynamic and often exciting album.
