TJR says

With their third album in three years the Boston rockers made a breakthrough in Canada (#7) as well as heightening their status on home soil (#11). The album spawned three singles; their signature song and first Top 40 hit “Sweet Emotion” (c/w some nice motifs from the Stones “We Love You”), their psuedo-funky first Top 10 hit “Walk This Way” and the symphonic power-ballad “You See Me Crying” which failed to chart. It has some decent moments (the Sabbath-easque sludge of “Round And Round” and the glam-swinger of “Uncle Salty”) but the nudge-nudge-wink-wink claptrap that is “Big Ten Inch Record” is naffness personified. Be wary mates…
