  • This is Budgie’s third album, and I think it is one of the best albums Budgie has ever released. All the Budgie albums released in 1971-75 are great but this (which was originally released in 1973) was a great step in studio quality. The sounds are much clearer and better. Still, I think that “Squawk” and “Budgie” were great releases too but this one brought them to the wider audience. Unfortunately, Budgie has never been a major band – although they would have deserved it. “Breadfan” (which has been covered by Metallica) is a great opener, and one rocking track. “In the Grip of a Tyrefitter’s Hand” and “You’re the Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk” are just classic Budgie. The drum solo before “…Powdered Milk” is absolutely fantastic! “Baby Please Don’t Go” was originally made by Van Morrison And Them. I haven’t heard the original one yet but Budgie’s version is great! “Riding My Nightmare” and “You Know I’ll Always Love You” are good pecaeful, acoustic tracks – near The Beatles. “Parents” is a great peaceful track, a power-ballad, one of the best tracks by Budgie.
