Psych influenced hard rock, with some punk elements. This should appeal to fans of heavy hard rock

Review:
This sounds exactly like Are You Experienced?. By 1968, everybody was already imitating Bold as Love and, eventually, Electric Ladyland, so this record is not like every other Hendrix rip-off. Even Vincebus Eruptum, which was released around the same time as this record, has a contemporary sound, but these guys are stuck in early 1967. To my ears, that's a very good thing. This album is consistently heavy, in a very consistently early Hendrix kind of way. Nice. The fuzz sounds a million times better than Blue Cheer's debut, and I don't see any resemblance to Eden's Children. The latter band played bland jazz-rock mixed with some fuzz solos; that's nothing like the heavy Hendrix rock found in this album.
