The brother of Rolling Stones vocalist Mick Jagger, on this solo outing Chris Jagger turns in a remarkably fine performance. Although Mick lends backup vocals to a few tracks, Chris does much to prove his own worth as all but one of the album's tracks were written or co-written by him.
Songs such as "Let Me Down Easy" and "My Friend John" are so infectious it almost seems criminal that the album didn't do more to further the younger Jagger's career. Though the second half digresses a bit into the quasi-spiritualism of the day, all in all the album is a solid rock effort that equals, if not surpasses in quality and originality, the mid-70s albums made by his famous brother's band.
