Customer Reviews

Part brilliant rock, part average pop.

Steppenwolf's penultimate album before the "John Kay and Steppenwolf" era is a mixture of classic rock and attempts at commercial pop success. Despite being written by Mars Bonfire, the opener "Caroline" is almost bubble-gum pop as is "Annie, Annie Over", but the brilliant "Two For The Love of One" redresses the balance with crisp production and a soaring guitar/ keyboard solo duel. "Just For Tonight" is an absolute classic with a beautiful haunting guitar tone from Bobby Cochran and lovely sentimental lyrics which deserved a wider audience. "Hard Rock Road" is great catchy pop-rock typical of the glam rock era, "Another's Lifetime" is typical Steppenwolf, " Someone Told A Lie" is a rocker with great vocals from George Biondo."Mr Penny Pincher" sees the band embracing synthesisers for the first time. This album is not typical Steppenwolf but follows on from Slow Flux as the band embrace the trends of the time very competently. Worth buying for "Just For Tonight" and "Two For The Love Of One" alone!

After Sparrow disbanded, Kay relocated to the West Coast and formed Steppenwolf,...
