There’s just too much standard blues here. These long bluesy scalings that end in monotony don’t work for me. By ’71 you would’ve expected the band to move on from these ideas and expand on their symphonic approach, but here they are plodding in guitar riddled bluesy solos that leave me cold. […]
Credit should be given to Colosseum for giving the album a markedly different approach than their studio outingsand it does demonstrate their prowess as a muscular live outfit with a taste for blending progressive rock, jazzand blues. […]
