Mountain takes the prize with this long awaited release. They unleash great pure rock tunes with energy like in the days of old. If you have been waiting for an all out heavy and hard sound with a solid performance by real musicians, you found it! They even throw it a killer tune with some strings just to keep you guessing. Some groups get better with time, but this group was great from the get-go. This proves they have never missed a beat! Well except on that one song, but only true fans no what I mean (and it was the best late entry in a tune ever!)

Interesting CD. Sometimes, Mountain sounds like a combination of Rob Zombie and ZZ Top and sometimes there's almost a hint of Jim Morrison and the Doors (on Mystic Fire for instance). This is one CD I really can't totally recommend, but can't really say it's all bad either. "Mystic Fire", "The Sea", and especially "Better Off With The Blues" are pretty good tunes.
"Fever", the old cover done by who knows how many "lounge singers" and jazzed up here just doesn't seem to belong. I would have preferred another original track from the band. I like the three songs previously mentioned, but otherwise, I'd probably leave this one alone.

I'm a Big Leslie West fan from way back. When I saw that Leslie and Corky had got back together with this release I rushed out to pick it up. The verdict is that this release surpasses the last release by the boys from Mountain by a well, mountain. Great rock and roll tunes with Leslies signature sound. Corky plays his a** off on the drums here as well. Some of the highlights include a great bluesy version of Fever, a slowed down version of Sea (of Fire), a rockin new tune Marble peach/Rotten peach, and a cool redux of Nantucket Sleighride. However, my personal favorite has to be "Better off with the Blues" a great switch of tempo from laid back blues to down an dirty blues. This is the best Leslie/Corky CD to be released in a long time. If your a old Mountain fan or want to hear one of the best guitar players to play rock &roll blues you owe it to yourself to get this CD. Bring the show out to Colorado boys. Keep on Rockin.

OK, this one wasn't bad. Nantucket Sleighride Redux was very good and it sounds like Leslie might finally be able to SING it properly (I've seen Leslie live twice - the playing rocks but he just can't SING that song for some reason... sigh), and some of the other songs are OK, but nothing memorable.
The album (like the last one) is still lacking in the song-writing department (Gail and Felix might have been weird but they were OK to decent song writers) and the sound here is thin, for some reason.
OTOH, I did buy it (and another one for my brother, who's loved Leslie/Mountain for YEARS), I do listen to it, and it still has more heart that 9 tenths of the "product" being produced today.
So - to sum it up - it's well worth 10 or 12 dollars, and if you get a chance, go see Leslie/Mountain, that IS worth it!

Just bought and listened to the best and true-to-the sound MOUNTAIN album since NANTUCKET SLEIGHRIDE! Yes, it's that good.Is it a coincidence that they do a cover of the Felix Pappallardi/Gail Collins-written song on this new CD? I don't think so as I feel it shows Leslie and Corky have taken the original Mountain concept to the XXIst century. Enjoy... and I mean it.

Man's World, the band's last album up to this point, had been a three star affair featuring some bright spots, but felt weighed down by a lack of cohesion and failure to play to the band's strengths. This follow-up is a decided step up from its predecessor, but nonetheless suffers from some fatal flaws that prevent it occupying a place alongside Mountain's finest efforts.

The primary problem is that Leslie West, for whatever reason, has trouble producing enough original material to fill an album. We can entertain a number of possible explanations as to why, but this album features a rewritten version of 1989's "Sea of Fire" from Alligator, a rewritten "Nantucket Sleighride", an instrumental cover of the traditional "Johnny Comes Marching Home", and a cover of a Delbert McClinton penned blues. This comes on the heels of the aforementioned 1996 studio album that featured drummer Corky Laing assuming the bulk of the songwriting duties. Despite Leslie's underrated vocal skills, West's songwriting talents are strong and distinctive enough that their increasing lack is deeply felt on new Mountain releases since 1985's Go For Your Life. The best Mountain albums, even dating to early in the band's history, are those where Leslie has a heavy hand in the songwriting.

Having said that, the new "Sea of Fire", now entitled "The Sea", is an improvement over the original and stands easily among the most musically and lyrically mature pieces West has yet offered. While the new "Nantucket Sleighride" never comes within a mile of matching the original's stunning synthesis of power and grace, it is a respectable tribute, if nothing else. Another cover that won't offend you while never erasing the memory of the original is the band's take on the R&B classic "Fever".
