I know that some people find this album inconsistent and over-rambling but that’s one of the reason why i love it. The more i listen to it, the more i like it because the performances are so fantastic. Burdon’s singing is probably at it’s strongest here, partuicuarly on ‘Paint It Black’ which is one of the greatest covers ever! They made it their own! The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is because of the lyrics which are often totally over the top in a sexual, hippy way (note the talking part in the aforementioned Paint It Black) but everything else is amazing!!
