Epitaph - 1972 - Stop Look and Listen

good stuff
By B. E Jackson on June 5, 2010
Stop, Look & Listen is probably a slight improvement over their self-titled album, but the songwriting still feels pretty weak overall. Sometimes the vocal melodies drag a little longer than necessary, not to mention the guitar playing is secondrate at best.

The lead singer had potential though. I like the sound of his voice, at least. I have no idea whether he's still around these days and singing or whether he retired a long time ago.

Still, this album is extremely inoffensive hard/progressive rock, and you can't go wrong with that. Don't expect the songwriting or guitar playing to completely blow you away and you'll be fine.

Includes Four Bonus Tracks.
