Mott's second album, recorded in the Spring of 1976. With all the band members contributing to the song-writing, the result is an altogether stronger album than its predecessor. Ray Major's guitar is kept back in the mix, with prominence going to Morgan Fisher's keyboards. I understand there may have been technical problems during the mixing of this album, added to which producer Eddie Kramer was approaching fatherhood, so his heart probably wasn't 100% in the project.

This was released on CD in Japan in 1996; it has now (1998) been released on CD in the UK.
