Review by

Free re-formed and brought back much of the old fire while integrating the mellowness, so things weren't quite the patchwork that often marred previous efforts. Both "Catch a Train" and "Little Bit of Love" burned with magic fire while "Travellin' Man" and "Sail On" proved to be first-rate ballads. Not perfect, but closer than before. [The 2002 British re-release includes six songs not found on the original, including an alternate mix of "Little Bit of Love," a cover of "Honky Tonk Women," and a Paul Rodgers solo version of "Guardian of the Universe."]
