This album showcases Marc's brave stab at rock / soul / funk fusion & an evolution of the T.Rex sound.
This album was a sea change in musical direction, as Marc integrated the influence of the sounds of black America with his own unique brand of rock & roll.
This is by no means the strongest T.Rex album & along with Bolan's Zip Gun, is probably the weakest of Marc's efforts.
However, Marc's attempts to create an "Interstellar Soul" sound, was innovative, if nothing else.
The sound evident on this album, evolved further on Zip Gun (although even Marc admitted the weaknesses in that record) & came to fruition on the hugely under rated Futuristic Dragon album (before a return to basics with the magnificent Dandy In The Underworld).
This has some hugley enjoyable tunes, along side some,at times, overblown efforts (at times some of the backing vocals take too much away from the songs)
Marc was trying something new but although I do enjoy this record, some of it doesn't quite come off & some of it sounds a bit lazy.
Still, Marc was ahead of the game with this album (which other British act at the time was trying to create this kind of sound ?)- not Bolan's best but worth having just to hear some innovative musical stylings we now often take for granted.
