Not bad for Blackfoot
S. A. Schnarr | 08/28/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While this recording has some good points, it also has some bad.....the "signature" sound of the late 70's is gone on this recording, replaced by what the band thought was a more "modern" sound. They were correct in that assumption, but incorrect in the long run (but hindsight is 20/20). The earlier Blackfoot albums turned out to be timeless recordings, whereas the ones that had the more "modern" sound were not nearly as enduring. Both Vertical Smiles and SIOGO are very difficult to find in most markets due to their initial and longstanding lack of commercial success. That is not to say that this particular Blackfoot effort is without merit. This is a good record and still fun to listen to once in a while, even though the sound is a bit dated. If you don't have it, and you like Blackfoot, it is worth buying.
