3 stars The second release of AR marks a completely different style from the debut. Crane takes more risks here, probably by the contribution of new members. Although still using the hard-rock verse and solo scheme, the guitar by John Cann is much more daring and gives the band a different and more complex air. There are plenty of guitar and hammond duets plus the standard hammond and drum solos that were so common at the time, but they sound less jammy and more experimental than before. The music has transcended beyond blues and rock but not much though, they remain faithful to the early 70's rock. My favorite tracks are Sleeping For Years with an excellent guitar work, an instrumental called VGU, and the album cover, a somewhat disturbing meat-man on his four legs, scared and scary.
