"NOT ONE OF THEIR BEST ALBUMS, CONSIDERING THEIR FIRST 2 WERE TOTALLY AWESOME. STILL, I LIKED THIS ALBUM. THE MATERIAL IS NOT AS STRONG AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. SO LETS START WITH THE OPENER. "THE UNDERWORLD KING" RANKS UP THEIR WITH THEIR PREVIOUS EFFORTS. DEFINETLY HOT STUFF. "MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE" LAGS. THE REMAKE OF THE OLDIES CLASSIC "YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELIN'" IS OUT OF PLACE ON THIS RECORD. "REMEMBER MY NAME" IS A CATCHY CLASSIC LEGS DIAMOND EFFORT. ACCUSTICALLY BRILLIANT, WITH THE SONG PICKING UP THE PACE TOWARDS THE END. "CHICAGO" IS GOOD OLD TIME ROCK AND ROLL."MIDNIGHT LADY" IS NOT A STRONG PIECE, BUT A GOOD SONG IN ITSELF. "HELP WANTED" IS A LOVE SONG THATS JUST O.K. "COME WITH ME", "TRAGEDY", & "MAN AT THE TOP" CLOSE OUT THE L.P., AND ALL 3 ARE LEGS DIAMOND TO THE HILT. I WASN'T FORTUNATE TO HAVE THE BONUS TRACK. OVERALL I RECOMMEND THIS CD BECAUSE IT DOES CONTAIN SOME CLASSIC LEGS DIAMOND MATERIAL."

"The tragedy here is that most people haven't even heard of Legs Diamond, but if you listen to this you'll like it and believe me you will remember their name. This, their third release, is not quite a concept album, but most of the songs are stylized so that it seems that way. The keyboard work of Mike Prince almost makes you feel like you are in Chicago with Legs Diamond and the past is alive and well. The only catch: that guitar, those drums, the bass and searing vocals.Many Legs fans view this album as a let down, but I disagree. This album, although different, is a masterpiece that Cream records unfortunately released and also failed to promote. There are no slackers on this, just like the first two Mercury releases. Listening to this, I frequently feel like I am in a smokey lounge with a ragtime piano player, but wait there's an excellent rock band there with him. Yeah, I dream a lot, but what of it. Good music does that for me.The finest tracks would have to be "Tragedy", "Remember My Name", "Underworld King" and "Come With Me". There are 2 bonus tracks one of which is a cover of Tommy Bolin's "Teaser" and it is good. They also do wonderful covers of "Help Wanted" and "You've Lost That Loving Feeling". This band has balls to go out on a limb like this, but it is all great stuff. Even though I have recommended all of their first 3 discs, please remember that this music is a little different than the debut and A Diamond is A Hard Rock. I highly recomend this to all. It's like a breath of the past from the present. If you're confused enough pick this up. It is definitely ear candy!"

"This is the third album, though not as hard as the first two albums, it is still a great cd. This band has great talant and their music just don't sound all the same like most bands. If you like rock and roll you will like this cd."
