Great early hard rock with roots (and parts of the stem) in psychedelia. The sparseness of the sound coupled with brilliantly performed vocals makes for perhaps the finest american hard rock album of the late sixties. It contains great rock tracks such as "I Don't Believe In Statues", and more experimental pieces like "Looking Back", with its' shifting meters and proto kraut parts. A "lost" classic.
