A long way from the frazzled, fragile beauty of Forever Changes, this slab of hard rock n' blues, with a soulful edge, confirms Lee was nothing if not a rocker at heart. All songs are strong and guitars invariably cranked up to the max. Churls might demur at the obvious debt to Cry of Love era Hendrix (that's First Rays of the New Rising Sun to you youngsters), and churls they'd be.
For increased pleasure, y brawd adds a clutch of winning acoustic versions culled from earlier Vindicator sessions and recently released on the uneven Love Lost.
