Critics regularly dismiss the British blues-rock explosion of the late '60s as nothing more than pasty white dudes ripping off Chicago's finest. That, however, is silly talk. Informed by Hendrix and Cream, Looking In is a psychedelic blues classic. Axemaster Kim Simmonds is so hot he must've soaked himself in gasoline and lit a match before pressing record. If that sounds cool to you, go straight to "Money Can't Save Your Soul"; there's a funky wah-wah bit in the middle that'll slay you.
