"A great album by a relatively obscure band that needs more attention from critics and the general public. This disc contains fantastic progressive, r&b based rock. Highly recommended for fans of experimental or progressive rock."

"CD reissue of Rooster's fourth lp,that was originally released in 1972.This was their follow-up to 'In Hearing Of...'(see my review).Even though 'Made...' is a bit too funky for my taste,I thought tracks like "Time Take My Life","Breathless" and the somewhat indepth "Close Yor Eyes" were decent tunes.Notice,however that once AGAIN they changed line-ups on us.Which is:Vincent Crane-organ,Steve Bolton-guitar,Chris Farlowe-vocals and Ric Parnell-percussion.In my humble opinion,Farlowe appeared on TOO many Atomic Rooster albums.For Rooster die-hards only."

"Now I've owned a couple of vinyl versions of this album (one near-mint)since it's release in '72, I think....So this particular reissue on CD had quite a bit to live up to; and Boy, it does not disappoint! First off, for anyone not familiar with Atomic Rooster: BUY THIS ALBUM!!! I have almost everything The 'Rooster ever committed to vinyl, and this one is still (IMHO) far and away the best, ya know? From the opening cut of "Time take My Life", between Vincent Crane's very spooky bass notes on electric piano to the horns and the creepy guitars from Steve Bolton and Oh Yeah; the thing that glues it all together (cut by cut): Chris Farlowe's harrowing, chilling, Blue-Eyed soul vocals (Mick Jagger called him the BEST blues singer in the UK, at one point...), this is the one to beat! I never thought they would top "Death Walks Behind You" for sheer VIBE, but the reason the band started to disintegrate (for real...) after this release is very simple: Vincent Crane knew, deep down, that he could never top it! Buy this: Then send your wife, girlfriend, lover significant other (or whatever) away for a few hours; crank this up as loud as possible, and in a few moments you'll be hooked for life...You'll find yourself always grabbing this as one of your "must-haves for the car...
