"With two future (and the founding) members of Cheap Trick in its rankings, this album couldn't be that bad. After purchasing a copy, it seems it's actually quite good. Fantastic even! It has a heavy rock sound very similar to that of Vanilla Fudge (their debut at least). If you're at least a casual to semi-serious fan of Cheap Trick and/or Vanilla Fudge, then you're in for a real trip."

"Being from Rockford, and having worked as a carpenter remodeling Rick Nielsens house, it is a relief to have FINALLY found this on CD!!! I have loved the unique sound these boys put out since I first heard a friends dads vinyl L.P. copy of this album about 30 years ago, and have not heard it in for the last 18 years. Great tunes, my favorites being 4/4 3/4, Show Me and To Your Health. Rick Nielsen mainly plays Keyboards on this, but he does display some early signs of songwriting ability as in Show Me and To Your Health. The singer was only 17 years old when this was released, what a strong voice for a kid!!! Tom Peterson has to be one of the most UNDERrated Bass players in popular rock. Just listen to his tight, chunky-bass on this album, and he was only 19 years old! Each track is different, nothing seems repetitive. That is to say, the guitarist, keyboards everyone sounds different on each track. I can skip the Bonus track of Hound Dog, though, only because I have NEVER liked that way-to-often-covered song in the first place.Do not expect to hear any "Cheap Trick sounding" material on this album. It is Hard-rock, a bit progressive, hard hitting music. This is a very good album, played by a bunch of Rockford kids, and is highly recomended by me."
