One of underrated albums of 70s

"The first Rolling Stone record guide dismissed Bloodrock as one of the worst hard rock bands of the 1970. Granted their first couple of albums were a little rough around the edges, although Bloodrock 2 was pleasing in some respects but a substantial improvent over the debut. With Bloodrock 3, the band from Fort Worth made a large leap. The music is melodic, with some great keyboard work by Steve Hill and that old 70s standby, the Hammond B-3 organ. Jessica is a standout track, but Song for A Brother is poignant in a weird kind of way and You Gotta Roll is good sourthern rock and Roll. On the second side (of the record, that is), Kool-Aid Kids is very inventive rock and roll with a swing to it. A Certain Kind is a little weak on the lyrica, but a lovely melody This album certainly deserves more credit than the high-minded Rolling Stone critics gave it. I'm wondering if they ever listened to it. At any rate, I think Bloodrock 3 is one of the underrated albums of 70s arena/hard rock."
ROCK AND ROLL'S FORGOTTEN GEM

"Breach Of Lease, You Gotta Roll, Whiskey Vengance, Jessica, Kool Aid Kids...It's all here, Haunting vocals, screaming guitar, Titanic riffs, The Hammond B-3 organ squeezed through the almighty Leslie speaker, Hard rock bordering on a Jazz/Metal fusion. This is probably one of the most overlooked albums by one of the most underated bands of all time. With Bloodrock there is never a dull moment. Music to be jammed to...music to be listened to. I'm convinced that the very song that brought them into the limelight (D.O.A.-from Bloodrock 2), turned enough people off that THIS album, Bloodrock 3, never had a chance to be recognized for the masterpiece that it is. This record would be at home along side of such other masterpieces such as Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", Alice Cooper's "Love it to Death" or Grand Funk's "Closer to Home". I judge a great album by it's listenability from beginning to end. There is no filler here. This album simply ROCKS! In my opinion, one of the greatest rock and roll records of all time. If you have never heard this record, you are missing out."
SOME GEMS AMIDST SOME MISSES

"Lapsed dramatics aside, Bloodrock 3 remains a cornerstone of early 70s psychedelia. Great, great organ riffs, abstruse lyrics, fine guitar licks. If I ever get to make a film about the early 70s, late 60s, it will certainly pay homage to "Kool Aid Kids" or "Jessica". I remember when they opened for Grand Funk in '71 when I was a tot. I forgot Grand Funk and went out and bought Bloodrock 3. Oh, that was the road to abacadabra and perdition, indeed!"
