"...would influence not only future metal spawn but even the sound of Nirvana" - Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
"...as irreducible as the bottomless sea, the everlasting sky, and the mortal soul...The rumbling sludge of heavy metal was inevitable, lying in long wait to be introduced by Black Sabbath" - Ian Christe
"Recorded in a single twelve-hour blurt by a hippie-leaning former blues band, this lumbering debut conjures up a new, sludgy sound: the birth pains of heavy metal. The slide guitar on "Wizard" and the grungy boogie of "Wicked World" would influence not only future metal spawn but even the sound of Nirvana." - www.rollingstone.com
