"First song, "The Sacrifice", kinda cemented their reputation as some kinda Sabbath disciples. Actually they are communal friends of Comus, who also revelled in disturbing imagery.
This is solid Steppenwolf hard rock with a melancholic feel. Album has a lot of atmosphere without actually going anywhere. Good use of electric and acoustic guitars playing off each other to create tension. Very haunting and wasted feeling."

"This is one of those obscure hard rock discs (and I buy alot) that was worth the money (though I paid about $16 for mine). It has a variety of flavors and that's a plus. The disc opens with a heavy number called The Sacrifice. The music is closer to Blue Cheer's Second Time Around, with the lyrics more close to Black Widow. This is followed by an enjoyable, catchy hard rock number called See The People Creeping Round. Next up, you have a haunting, beautiful number in And I have Loved You, the only mellow cut on the disc. Those three alone are worth the price to me. You have some tracks in the middle that remind me alot of the material on side one of Blue Cheer's New! Improved! album, and that's not a bad thing. Then, for contrast (say, to the first cut), you have a song that's almost Christian in lyric, and music and arrangement somewhere along the lines of Quicksilver Messenger Service (Pride Of Man on their first album), and it works quite well. Even the tracks on this disc one might consider weaker, have their moments. The album closes with a political song called Step Out Of Line. Excellent track, and truth hardly sounds dated. Vocals, guitar and bass all above average, and a pre-Atomic Rooster Ric Parnell turns in some excellent stick work. Overall worth your time if you dig '68 to '72 hard rock. I enjoy the disc more with each listen."
