Commercially speaking, this is where Climax started their downhill slide, but for me this is a much better album than the previous years Gold Plated which was hugely successful. A much more complete set of stronger songs where each department of the band's strengths really do shine. From the opening smooth but strong Makin' Love, driven unusually (for Climax) by acoustic guitar the wonderful harmonies around Colin Cooper's lead vocal set the tone for the album, but also Pete Haycock's guitar weaving through the song is quite magnificent. Mistress Moonshine is irresistibly funky, building slowly and again with harmonies of the highest quality, it's a song that is infectious and so pleasing. When Talking... is just the best 'ballad' Climax ever recorded, heartfelt yet still uplifting thanks to a brilliant sax solo, Climax at their best. Whatcha Feel is half the song it became when played live but still has a heavyweight funk feel to it that shows off just how good Climax were in this style...it soon became a live favourite, stretching out to 10 or 11 minutes, showcasing sax and guitar without becoming egotistical solo-ing, keeping the playing in context with the funk laid down by the song. The Gospel Singer proves just how versatile the band were, even within the context of an 8 track album. It is a genuine gospel blues - if only by the fact that Colin's vocals take you there, but in fact the whole effect is pure. Teardrops is (for me) the track that is the only slightly weak link on the album but even this is raised by a great sax solo.Read more ›

I have this on vinyl, and its a frequent visitor to my turn table, and there's not a bad track on it. I've been waiting years for CD re-issue as my vinyl is starting to wear.
It marked a departure from Climax's original blues sound, and is much more commercial sounding.
Stand out tracks for me are champagne And Rock and Roll (written while touring supporting ZZ Top on a US tour), when Taking Is Too Much Trouble, a great Pete Haycock ballad (sadly Pete passed away a few weeks ago), and Like A Movie.
A great more easy listening album, and my favourite Climax album of them all.
