An Underrated Masterpiece
T. DaPrato | Middletown, NJ USA | 09/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This incredible album was, for me, the pinnacle of Humble Pie's career. A clean crisp production coupled with Steve Marriot's voice at the top of his game makes for a true masterpiece of 70's blues rock. There's not a weak track on the record. From the moment it starts with the powerful "Thunderbox" until the end with "Oh La De Da", the album motors through with emotion, grace and swagger. While the boys do a few interesting covers on this record, like "Can't Stand the Rain", "Drift Away" and "No Money Down", it's the originals, like "Every Single Day", Ninety-Nine Pounds", "Rally with Ali" "No Way" and the aforementioned "Thunderbox" that really make the album move. "Groovin with Jesus" and "Dont Worry, Be Happy" are two other funky tunes that seem to jam on the same backbeat. One almost seems like a reprise of the other.

Overall, if you are interested in picking up a great, well produced and fun effort by the Pie, you can not go wrong with this collection."
Another Smokin' Album- Steve Marriott Does It Again!!!
Augusto Tejeira | Panama City, Panama | 05/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is usually lowly-regarded by critics, but they could not be more wrong. Most of the songs are great. Ninety pounds is one of my favorites Pie songs and I Can't stand the rain has one of the most soulful lead vocals in all of rock n roll. Anna is a great ballad and Drift Away is an excellent cover (sung by Greg Ridley). Other highlights include: the fine rockers Thunderbox, No Way, Every Single Day and Oh La De Da. The only songs I do not care much for are Groovin with Jesus and Don't Worry, Be Happy, since they are too funky for my taste.

If you like the Black Crowes you will love this album, and other Pie albums such as Smokin', Rock On, As Safe As Yesterday Is and Town & Country. The main influence of the Black Crowes is Humble Pie, much more than other influences commonly mentioned (Rolling Stones, Faces).
