First things first, that album cover is something of an odd one.It almost reminds me of an Escher drawing...still, it does reflect the significance of BOC's debut album. The music itself is exemplary. Guitar work is solid, solos come exactly at the right moments, and the blues and psychedelic influences work very well indeed.

Strong beginning. The band would make IMO a couple more noteworthy albums later, that would sound similar to this album, so it's good to hear this album and see how the songwriting developed from the beginning. Those last two songs, Workshop and Redeemed, are what I think are the most remarkable songs on this album.
