2.0 out of 5 stars For the completists!, 14 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Super Active Wizzo (Audio CD)
The chap before says it all, I bought the album in the early 80's as a Roy Wood fan and must admit it was hard work. This is sort of Pseudo jazz rock and to be honest probably everything that punk was trying to get away from back in 1977, I.E. overly long complex songs that didn't mean much to anyone but played with wonderful skill. What is a shame is the absense of any humour which for Roy Wood was always present in all his works apart from ELO's first album. On the upside there is some great playing on songs like "Another Wrong Night" which has a great funky feel but unfortuntely goes on about 10 minutes too long! "Earthrise" is a beautiful song and should have been shorter without the long instrumental sections and the drums are played like John Bonham which is a little inappropriate for a ballad! In all it's an essential purchase for avid Roy Wood fans and I'm glad they finally released it but for everyone else I'd stay clear. I have a recording of the TV performance of this and it would have been great to have that released as it contains some great tracks including French Perfume and California man which performed by this big band sounds fabulous.
