"I cannot understand how the previous reviewers can pan this album. The songwriting, vocals, and instrumentation are excellent. This is a solid and memorable effort by a severely underrated group."
Great 70s comeback album by the 60's seminal Liverpool Rock

"The Pretty Things were key originals of the 60s British Invasion. They had a couple of big hits in 1965 and then fell off the charts in the US, but were always huge in their homeland. Friends of the Beatles and intimates of the Rolling Stones - they even swapped band members back and forth in the early days, as I recall. On iTunes, their reviewer (for another album-this one's not available there) claims that Rolling Stone magazine rated their 1970 album, Parachute, the best album of the year! This group is the all-time sleeper by that measure, since that putative Bible of Rock passed up classic 1970 releases like the Beatles' "'Let It Be', Derek and the Dominoes, and Black Sabbath's epoymous debut album. Also running behind that year were Jimi Hendrix, Traffic, the Allman Brothers, the Doors, The Stooges, Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Pretty Things toured with Electric Light Orchestra in the US in 1978. Perhaps I was the only fan at their concert at Kent State U who came to see the opening act. ELO was OK, too, but I left early- I'd heard the best already. No serious student of Rock history can ignore this band, the Missing Link of British Rock."
This is one great band !

"Pretty Things was the second band signed by Led Zepplin's label, after Bad Company. They never achieved the commercial success they deserved. The Swansong label had signed a great band that had bad luck. This band was hard to deal with and they would self-destruct, and would keep on messing up. Their music and talent were wonderful though, and they rocked! This is one of my top 10 albums of all time. This to me is Pretty Things at their best, with Savage Eye following. The vocals and instrumentation are great. The Pretty Things are one British band that should not go unoticed in your cd collection. The Cd packaging on this 1974 release is also very good.A great cover for an album!"
