Reviews & Opinions

MARK P, SNIFFIN' GLUE #7, March 1977: This lot are young but I reckon that they're a bit too serious about the music. They're like a cross between the Doctors of Madness and Roxy Music (not helped by the very Roxy-ish cover). The songs are OK but the music tends to get a bit too weird, probably the violin. I like this album but I wished I like it more. They're hitting their heads against a brick wall.

Additional Notes

Song titles on vinyl version are as stated on the labels (the titles are slightly different on sleeve). A different remaster of this album was issued as part of The Island Years.
