I Like this very much. This, The Move's third album, is one of the heaviest, musically speaking, that they ever recorded. By then, their line-up had been graced by the induction of Jeff Lynne, pointing the way to the ultimate formation of the Electric Light Orchestra ELO in They still had one foot in the Pop charts, with the delightfully lumbering 'Brontosaurus', and the failed, but very ambitious single 'When Alice Comes Back To The Farm'. Other tracks including the heavy-as-lead title track, and Jeff Lynne's fabulous 'What?
Not all of it is great - 'Feel Too Good' goes on a bit too long, and the bonus tracks are worth having, but inessential. The sound mastering quality is excellent, as is the packaging, making this the best version of 'Looking On', an album that has been reissued several times. This is my personal all-time-favourite-album, most heard and I love it since I first heard it in The Roy Wood title track "Looking On" is a very heavy and strong rock track, which nevertheless burns into your head after you listen to it for the first time.
It's a an experimental one with many effects at the vocals but also on the instruments. It's not a real ballad, but a characterful slow track by the genius Jeff. A Woody track which is pure Rock 'n' Roll Unfortunately the single didn't reach the charts and failed. Here ends the first side of the vinyl edition.
So much of different styles on it. Sometimes dark, sometimes funny. Classical elements going to psychodelic ones, changes in tempo, a drum solo of its best and nice and clear vocals most as a choir.
Wonderful track, which is still one of my 5 favourites track ever! The album finished with the longest track. Jeff plays drums on that song - dunno why, but it rocks! Feel too good has a lot of folk style in it, maybe a little gospel, maybe a little Listen to it This is fun pure I love such surprises at the end of a record. In that time there was another song.
Rick wrote the b-side for the Single Brontosaurus. And the song had the title "Lightning Never Strikes Twice". A very very strong one! Unfortunately not on the album. Rick wrote that song together with Mike Sheridan. That's it. From me 5 Stars for this wonderful album. A must have for every real rock and rock'n'roll fan! One person found this helpful. It's Enter Jeff Lynne. And begin The Move's attempt to get in sync with the new decade.
This is basically hard rock with a few eccentric moments like Roy Wood inserting discordant cello and oboe for no other reason than he can. Those diversions do provide some welcome respite from the otherwise heavy-handed progression of the album. Some reviewers have likened Roy Wood's 'rock' voice to that of Ozzy Osborne. Stereo 1.

The menace, drive, atmosphere, melodies, craft and wonderful driving pop rock at its best. The video footage, sound and and live stuff Is terrific. This is the best. Just love the Move. The Move are one of the best bands of all time, and in a just world, would be seen on the same level as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Cream, and other bands of the early-to-late s.
While all the music is great, the big thing here are the live performances on the DVD, many never released before. A truly innovative band for their time. I had the pleasure of knowing Carl Wayne and what a true gentleman he was and sadly missed. Pages with related products. See and discover other items: wave sound.

With its aggressive guitar riff and growling vocal, the song marked a major shift in sound compared to their previous, more pop -orientated single " Curly ", presumably Roy Wood 's attempt to put some distance between the band and former vocalist Carl Wayne , whose "Middle of the road" leanings caused disagreements with the other members.
This song was the first Move recording made after former Idle Race front man Jeff Lynne had joined, and he contributed guitar and piano. Lynne had been recruited into the group with the main aim of developing the embryonic Electric Light Orchestra , though they were contractually required to keep The Move with their proven track record as a hit singles outfit functioning in order to help finance the new project.
When The Move promoted it on Top of the Pops on BBC TV , Wood - who had never appeared on television as the group's frontman before - appeared in the makeup that he would later develop two years later as the leader of Wizzard.
