Disraeli gears

"This is one of the best rock albums ever made. I heard it the first time when I was 10 years and it has followed me through the years."
When Cream came screaming across the music scene

"Forged from technical expertise and personal animosity---remember Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce were at war with one another back then---Cream came screaming across the music scene of the late '60s as a powerhouse that demanded to be heard.

"Sunshine of Your Love," "Tales Of Brave Ulysses" and "We're Going Wrong" are perhaps the best known tracks on a stellar album, though "World of Pain" and "Dance the Night Away" may best represent the prevailing vibe of the time.

Though he did not write much of the material and what he did write tended to be eccentric, Ginger Baker clearly powered this trio with his amazing time signatures and ability to match Bruce or Clapton's inventiveness. Jack Bruce seemed to be in his element here: solid, clean bass lines and gutty vocals. Eric Clapton was on a mission back then, and his inspired work throughout this recording lives up to any hype.

If you only buy one Cream recording (excluding the artifical anthologies and best of's), I think this is the one to have for it is more mature than "Fresh Cream" and largely lacks the excesses that marred parts of "Wheels of Fire." The weaker tracks, such as Blue Condition, have not improved with age, however."
