Tough and flexible as hot leather
on 17 October 2003
This album is an obscure classic. Mel Galley plays tasty licks (phew), Glenn Hughes is at his best, a young, brilliant and unpretentious soul-rock singer, and Dave Holland (how many Dave Hollands are there in music?!?) is a tight, funky drummer. The songwriting is focused and the guitar riffs are memorable. The sound is live and juicy but clear. All in all the album is a perfect jewel of three-piece funk-rock, although it features great contributions from steel guitar and sax. Anyone following Glenn's trail backwards from Deep Purple should be well pleased with this one.
