Customer Review

The average number of stars will never change from 5. If you like Spirit then you love this album. I owned two vinyl copies, listen to my cd copy regularly, yet every time I play it I am surprised and delighted by each new track. It was put together to flow perfectly across two sides of vinyl, with a pause after "Mr Skin" (turn it over) building to a definite ending at "Soldier". Shame about the bonus tracks on the cd then . . .
The melodies are massive, its beautifully sung, and every other instrument is creative and inventive, fitting in with a band sound to enhance the songs. There is no pulp on this album, no "this is a nice groove so we'll sit in it", instead there is evidence everywhere of drummer Cassidy's jazz leanings pushing things where you didn't expect. I have a lot of great albums, but if I had to name my favorite then 12 dreams and American Beauty would just have to fight it out.
