Their Best - A Must Have For Rock Fans
D. Bowles | Planet Earth | 05/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ex-Fludd bassist Greg Godovitz's power trio produce their best work. Written and released at the height of their popularity, this album encompasses everything from classical (no, that's not a misprint) to pulse-pounding rock, to sax-driven blues.

The album begins somewhat delicately with the Godovitz-composed "Anacanapanacana", a classical piece mirroring passages from several of the "mainstream" songs on the album, before plunging headlong into "So Walk On", what may very well be the best Canadian rock song ever written. The album suddenly hits the brakes for the ballad "Chantal", then accelerates once again through "You're So Cruel" and "Verdict's In". "Sign On The Line" is a broadside against record company executives and lawyers (" can't deal with record execu-jives"). "Rosie (Just Hang On") is a rocking ode to Godovitz's live-in girlfriend at the time.

This album may not contain their best-known commercial single (see "Pretty Bad Boys"), but it contains their best body of work. The production is pleasingly spartan, not relying on a plethora of overdubs and remixes. In his book "Travels With My Amp", Godovitz relates how it took an increasingly liquored-up sixteen-piece orchestra several hours to finally nail "Anacanapanacana" - I, for one, believe the liquor adds to the feel."
