These yodel-progging Netherlanders' fourth album since the '70s ended veers mostly toward instrumental jazz fusion, fronted by lifetime member Thijs Van Leer's flute and organ. "Father Bachus" opens it up with a big rock riff, then gets fancy; not until deep into the seventh track, "Hoeratio," do things get as aggressive as, say, '70s Rush. Even "Amok in Kindergarten" doesn't quite run amok. But "All Hens on Deck" chicken-scats fast, funky and silly enough, and between medieval jigging ("Talk of the Clown") and percussion-rocked lounge-lizardry ("X Roads"), there is still weird fun to be had.
