To sum up quickly, I really like this album, and can respect it as a bona-fide classic rock masterpiece, unlike a lot of some of the other mush that this band has produced. The guitar soloing in Nobody's Fault remains as one of my many favorites, 22 yrs after it was released. This album was, from my perch on the fence, from an era when Areosmith were a lot more concerned with tightly wrapped rock songs than they were in later years, as I find that they are such a corporate type entity today, kinda like Kiss. In closing, of all the albums these guys have put out over the years, this is probably the one that most typifies them, from an era when rock and roll was not so........stagnant. Some of the drivel on the radio today insults my musical intelligence, given how many times the same chords have been recycled into the same repetitive lyrics.
So, get to know Martin.......Martin up, that is, and buy this album if you enjoy this band or seventies rock in general. You really can't mess up with this one..I swear, the outro solo of Nobody's Fault is some of the most "in the pocket" guitar playing I have ever heard...Hendrix could not have been more connected.
later..(places earphones back on head).
