AllMusic Review by Jim Newsom;  Score: ***½
°   The second album from this British jazz–rock quintet rocks harder than their first outing. Their take on Jack Bruce’s “Rope Ladder to the Moon” is especially strong, and “Jumping off the Sun” has a similar feel. “Bolero” has been done to death, but guitarist Dave Clempson (who later replaced Peter Frampton in Humble Pie) uses it to launch a showcase of guitar fireworks. In fact, Clempson’s blazing guitar licks shine throughout. Dick Heckstall–Smith once again impresses on his arsenal of saxophones and woodwinds, and the seven–and–a–half minute title cut which he co–wrote with drummer Jon Hiseman is a highlight of this disc.
