This is by far the best Pat Travers album ever. I've had this album since college. The songs are almost voodoo blues yet mesmerizing rockers that overlap each other with depth and complexity. The album comes across as intense and dark, but much of this music is melodic and airy. My personal standout here is "Can't Be Right", but every song is fantastic. Pat Travers is a true musician who has stood the test of time. I hope he continues writing such impressive music for many more years to come.

Excellent blend of rock & blues. I feel this was Travers at his peak. Travers is not one to commonly write tunes for the radio, but this album boasted 3 solid FM-radio friendly songs with "Crash & Burn", "Snortin' Whiskey" and "Can't Be Right". "Born Under a Bad Sign" is a good cover version, while Bob Marley's "Is This Love" gets only an average review. Travers is best with his crunchy loud guitars and his deep vocals telling you a story about being down in the dumps. Is Travers a rock artist first, and then a blues man.... or vice-versa? I can't decide. Either way, he is usually singing about Dumpsville, USA. Journeyman skin pounder Tommy Aldridge (the ultimate hard rock drummer) compliments Travers' band nicely (Aldridge has a great track record playing with such bands as Black Oak Arkansas, Pat Travers Band, Ozzy, & Whitesnake). Pat Travers remains relatively unknown with a majority of the listeners. Be the envy of your next party - throw this disc on the cd player - I guarantee people will be asking who it is! A diamond in the rough.

Pat Travers is one of the most underrated guitar players, singer/songwriters in the universe. While I feel his best work was to come...the first four tracks on this CD are great and well worth the purchase.
His guitar riffs are varied and show alot of range without dragging on and on like so many axe men of that era. His rough, soulful vocal style fits like a glove.
The foray into jazz/rockish keyboard compositions are but a slight detour from the real strengh of PT...guitar based hard rock!! Track 8 is laughable. Thank god he came to his senses and avoided that light wieght rubbish in future recordings.
Check out his "Blues Magnet" and "Halfway to Somewhere" CD's...they are the real deal!!

I really like this album and bought the vinyl record album when it was initially released in 1980. I was glad to finally get it in CD format recently, and have happily listened to it several times since then. The sound of the CD is fantastic -- great mastering job. I LOVE the sound of the snare drum on several of the songs -- sounds better than what I remember it sounded like on the vinyl version.

While PT changed his sound a bit on this album (compared to his previous studio albums), using more keyboards, it mostly works on this album. The organ sound on the title track and on "The Big Event" is fantastic. The guitar sound on the more rocking tunes such as "Can't Be Right", "Snortin' Whiskey", and "Material Eyes" is incredible.

I am not a big fan of the cover tunes on this album, however. I love PT, but I don't like it when he does covers. "Is This Love" and "Born Under a Bad Sign" are bland and seem to be filler on this album.

One other issue bugged me when I first heard this CD and still does when I listen to it. When "Is This Love" was being mastered for the CD, somebody apparently started it at too fast a speed because the song is NOTICEABLY slowed down over the course of a few seconds in the first part of the song. Or, does it start at the correct speed and is slowed down too much? I'm not sure. All I know is that somebody did a terrible job on this song. I know my CD isn't the problem, because the same problem is present on my digital download of the same album. This problem is not present on my original 1980 vinyl record.

Everyone probably remembers "Snortin' Whiskey", but there's a lot of great music, here. I like it when he steps out of the blues rock comfort zones and does things with fusion implications. If you already like 70's hard rock in general or Pat Travers in particular, I'm sure you'll like this.

Despite the presence of a few keyboards on this CD, this album is a well-blended melting pot of rock, blues and jazz. Even reggae is covered here in the form of a cover version of Bob Marley's "Is This Love?" Yet the rock songs best define Travers' standing as a rock pioneer. Listen to "Snortin' Whiskey" and "Your Love Can't Be Right" and you will be converted permanently. An underrated yet accomplished artist...

I don't know why, but I had been thinking about this cd for a couple of weeks before I bought it. I listen to much heavier stuff now than back in the 80's when this came out. I don't want to date myself too much...but...this cassette was in my car stereo 24/7/365. I loved it back then and I still love it now. The biggest surprise when i bought it was it qualified for a free digital download as well. So I bought it, downloaded it...listened to it...the disc arrived in like 3 days...I opened it and listened to it again! I will probably order "Putting it Straight" next from Pat Travers.
