"Solid followup to their equally impressive debut. It's hard to figure out exactly why they didn't achieve greater success. While they dabbled in classical music, and were innovative and experimental, their music still was accessible and often didn't stray too far from more or less mainstream pop/ rock. The band were all really good musicians, and in Kamen and Corrigan they had a pair of accomplished and diverse vocalists. This second album isn't perfect, but they had the good taste to pick a somewhat offbeat choice of a Hendrix cover, and "Kite Song" is really beautiful, a great example of a fairly simple track that doesn't try hard to be overly impressive or technically brilliant- it's just a really nice tune that reminds me of Tim Hardin for some reason. "Sing Lady Sing" is a driving track that Buddy Miles later ' borrowed" for 'Them Changes" "Asking Too Much" is a catchy, appealing number" and there are several other fine cuts. A good album from a band that, like many other acts of its time, deserved more success than they got. Not their best album, but one that has a lot of good stuff."

"Even though the band was beginning to focus more on their 'rock' chops, which they would perfect on ROLL OVER, this is a beautiful, ambitious long player. A product of 'the times' which still sounds fresh today. An ambitious marriage of classical, pop, and rock, with a bit of broadway showtune thrown in for fun. That an album so great could lost in the shuffle is pretty amazing. Here's your chance to enjoy a real sixties gem."
