The classic side two makes this one
Reviewer: John Fitzgerald, Human resources staff database assistant March 28, 2001 Although disappointing as a follow up to the classic "In the skies", this album will grow
on you with each listen, especially side two with a great opening blues "Walkin' the road"
followed by "One woman love" which has a hypnotically funky bassline throughout which
is very effective and you can't help but like and sing a long to for the rest of the day. The
next one "Cryin' won't bring you back" is pretty good atmospherically speaking but
nothing compared to the epic closing title track. Often dismissed as a pale shadow of
"Albatross" but at least one can enjoy the musical magic for seven minutes and not care if
spraying cymbals have been used before, it's very relaxing indeed. As for side one, it
opens with trashy yet likable backing vocals one can't help to join in with on "Loser two
times", then comes an interesting reggae on "Mamma don'tcha cry", an effective cover of
Albert King's nugget "Born under a bad sign" followed by two moderately slow blues
numbers "I could not ask for more" & "Baby when the sun goes down". You may not
agree on first listen but give it time and you'll have enough faves on here you'll like to
recommend it too just like me.
