I do like these three quite a bit, I have to say. Similarly, several of the singles..."Power.." I've really come around to after decades of antipathy, the hazy narcotic AOR psych of "Mind Games" and "#9 Dream" always sounds pretty bitchin' on the radio... And, yes- there's a couple of others from this period where you can hear a decent melodic idea almost straining to break free and turn into a genuine musical event, until someone (Gordon Edwards?) comes along and plays a really naff sounding high note on the bass that may as well serve as a HAZMAT sign.
I notice we're all being generous enough not to mention Rock And Roll

But, yeah, a period of any hero's work where I can genuinely enjoy something like - at best - 1 out of every 3 or 4 songs is...well, I wouldn't even know what to say about that.
