Worth A Listen
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I never figured out why this album always seems to get a bad rap. Of the three Flash albums I own, this one seems to get the most play in my CD player. Because the songs are shorter in length than previous Flash albums I think some people tend to think it is a commerical attempt at pop music and not worthy of being labeled progressive rock. There are plenty of progressive thrills to be had here. It contains some of Peter Banks' best guitar work and the band as a whole sounds much tighter than the previous albums. True, there are a couple of slow spots, but really only a couple, and the same can be said about the two previous Flash albums. If you are a fan of either of the first two Flash albums, I wouldn't pass this one up."
Success remains out of reach for Flash on final album.

"By this, their third album, it was quite obvious that Flash were not going to give Yes a run for their money. In fact, Flash wouldn't even come close to matching Yes' commericial and artistic successes. A lame concept album about some guy from the Planet Catalina, Out Of Our Hands stumbles in the usual places: weak vocals, inane lyrics, lack of keyboards, etc. Why group leader/guitarist Peter Banks never bothered to replace Tony Kaye on keyboards after the first album is the head-scratcher here. Trying to do it all on guitar, Banks and band mates just can't seem to muster the musical depth to keep up with their prog-rock counterparts (although Banks' guitar work here is awesome, as usual). After this album, Banks retired Flash altogether and started a new band called Empire. They recorded three album's worth of material in the late '70s - none of which was ever released by a major label until just recently (on One Way)."

"You know, Ive listened to my fair share of Psychic TV, and this album is the best. By far. High energy without being overwhelming. And it has some really phat beats on it. My advice is to BUY BUY BUY!"
