One of Fallout`s better album`s this one. Both in quality and sound. Food were a Chicago band and this was their only album.
Quality Psych Pop/Rock is the order of the day here. The title track is one of the high points, and as on most of the album, there`s a lot of sweeping string arrangements and even brass added to the mix in places [see the beautiful "What It Seems To Be"]. The band show they could rock as well on "Naive Prayers", "Leaves" and others.
One puzzling thing is that the C.D i bought says 12 tracks on the back and inlays, but it only contains 11...the track listing isn`t the same as the one listed on Amazon,either. I contacted the seller but didn`t receive any feedback, so i`m none the wiser.
Anyhoo, this comes recommended from The Baron...you know you want it.

How many times have you bought a psych album with such freaky psychedelic art you actually felt stoned just looking at it, only to be disappointed with soppy pop filler? Well, this is the reverse case: while the cover may look like a promotional photo for Revenge Of The Nerds 2, it's packed with great psych rock/pop. The songs are very well-written, and there are a lot of interesting psychedelic touches to interest the psych fan. And because it was recorded for a major label, the sound quality is as perfect as you'd expect from a master tape remastering job. This album really needed a different cover. It completely misrepresents their music.
