AllMusic Review by

"I am Willy Wonka's son/I have come to be the one," sings lead singer Mic'l Wolf on "I Like It Like That." This is one of the few humorous quips in an otherwise return to '70s hard rock in the vein of Led Zeppelin and the Cult in the '80s. Composed of members ranging from funk and soul bands to hard rock act Bloodstone, the musicianship is quite adept at creating a quasi-spiritual hard rock album. At times, slick production values tend to overshadow the improvisational talents on a truly bending song like "Should I." "Heavy Setter" and "Spaces in Between" are the highlights here, a mix of funky vibes with hard rock riffs. Lyrically, the songs could use some polishing, but perhaps in a live setting, the overall effect renders them insignificant. A good debut from a band with bigger things to come.
