One of my favorite heavy 70's records for sure. This is the bands second LP, and features their first guitarist Mick Bolton. They called this "space rock", some called it prog rock. To me it was just great hardrock that was a perfect mixture of Black Sabbath, Led Zepplin, and Pink Floyd. Stuff is so heavy for the time period. After seeing some of the bands early videos on youtube its easy to see just how influential these guys first two records were. Totally addicting, early metal. The rhythm section is amazing, and so tight.

    Thanks for this!
    UFO was great and much overlooked, and this early stuff was tight. "phenomena" is another good one by them. There was a rumor that Phil Mogg had something to do with Bon Scott's death (or was partying with him that night), but I can't remember what...

  4. It's hard not to air drum to this one. I love the production. The bass sounds amazing.

    Thanks man.

  5. This band is really cool one of the best, I believe that the album's title has a little to be with the state you have to be in order to listen to it, but no one will complaint that's for sure.
