It’s rougher and rawer than the group’s studio recordings, expanding beyond pop’s parameters into serious electric firepower. Ric Price's bass turns into the band's most vicious instrument. The harmonies still connect, but the band’s sheer brute force takes center stage. The album opens with the first of two Nazz covers, "Open My Eyes,” in an aggressive performance that’s beautiful in its unvarnished glee.

Roy Wood's originals are sparingly applied, with the peculiar "Cherry Blossom Clinic Revisited" a highlight.
