This great title later was utilised by the NME! The album documented the band’s somewhat meteoric rise to success in Europe. Inevitably, the songs reflected a year spent on the road. The production this time much more accurately mirrored the sound of the live band. Guitars were featured more heavily and W atts’ vocals were no longer in the register of “a monkey on helium!” The single ‘So Long’ raised the band’s profile in Europe and introduced them to the USA. This album was less of a critical success with the media, but received with great enthusiasm by the public. The band’s popularity and sales grew accordingly.
