Eight tracks long and a running time of around 40 minutes; the way a 70's rock album should be...and they don't come much better than this one.
The first track sets the tone, sqeeling guitars, thundering drums, catchy bass and a vocal delivery that will have you reaching for the Strepsals. Dan McCafferty has been mentioned as a great influence by singers such as Axl Rose and Danny Bowes, and you can hear why.
Tracks 1,3,5,7 and 8 are rockers that stand up to anything the so called supergroups of today have churned out. They would sound in place on a Metallica album, but Nazareth seem to do it with more class and restrain which really allows the vocals to stand out, where other lesser vocalists would be drowned out by such bombastic music.
Tracks 2,4 and 6 are more melodic. May The Sunshine is a great power ballad that Bon Jovi would be proud of, whereas Star is a real emotional ballad which you could easily picture R.E.O Speedwagon or Chicago tackling.
Every track could have been a single and would have stormed up the charts if they had been sung by a more 'fasionable' group. In particular, check out Simple Solutions and No Mean City; they are rockers that blow many 'bigger bands' away.
Without a weak track among the playlist, if you are looking for a classic sounding hard rock offering from the 70's, you will not be able to do much better than this.
