"This album is the starting point for a shift in style from
their earlier psychedelic stuff to down-home rock! The year is 1970, the Quo had grown their hair long, did away with the acid dippy reverb effects to their music and opted for a harder, twin guitar driven blues approach. And what a catchy batch of songs these are too! After the traditional 12 bar opening of 'Spinning Wheel Blues', you'd think all the band did was mellow down. But no!! Here comes 'Daughter' with a menacing
lead guitar lick and a gritty rythm guitar backing ensemble which then became their signature thrash_a_boogie style! "daughter cant you answer for yoursellllf?" screams the vocals and you cant help but to start swaying to the groove! (april) spring summer and wednesdays" is another gritty dish of seventies hard rock! with a very cool start _ stop power chording style and a tongue in cheek clever chorus> but the absolute standout track on this album is "is it really me" talk about a mean seventies hard rock tune! perfect sountrack song to some grimy long haired bellbottomed gearhead souping up the engine to his nineteen seventy gran torino in his garage as his daisy duked honey is handing him tools and sharing a beer>> aah this is a must get! the perfect new beginning to the quo saga!"
