"Not even most burnouts from the 70's remember this band (except mayber for a few of the wild album covers). However, if you ever want to know what is wrong with rock today, listen to this. Not expertly mixed (thus, knocked off a star), nevertheless, this album really rocks. From the opening notes to "Castle of Thoughts" to the mighty crescendos of the trio "Cheater", "jessica" and "Gotta Find a Way", this is a power album. The vocals are muddy, but the music employs the rousing bass guitar and the sloppy almost out of control lead guitar which dominates some of the best rock of this genre. This groups bridges that fine line between heading for out of control to being out of control (as exhibited by some of the more unihibited acts of the time, such as the MC5 and the "old" Alice Cooper group). Highly recommeded for those who yearn for this type of music. Since its not being made today, its great to be able to find "new" music like this."

"This record will allow to to fully experience the sound of the Les Paul and a Marshall. With a knife cutting edge and piercing sound that I have never found in any other alblum it is by far one of my very favorite alblums."
Bloodrock/Texas style rock

"I saw Bloodrock on tour with Grand Funk in the the early 70's and bought this when it was released. Great music and great songs spanning Bloodrock's catalog. When Lee Pickens left Bloodrock I had the pleasure of seeing the Lee Pickens Group in Weatherford, Oklahoma shortly after the release of his album LPG featuring the great song Hold On. Bloodrock, Lee Pickens, and Nitzinger all produced great Texas sized rock and this album is worth the money. Great guitar and keyboards and the music is a reminder of how good rock was in the 70s."
