I'm only rating the studio disc.
IMO this is their best album. On songwriting in par with Disraeli Gears but the band plays better and the sound is clearer.
The live disc is fantastic but as I said the rating doesn't include it.

Very good!

Half live/half studio, wheels of fire, is another classic Cream album. White room, and, crossroads, are great. Toad, is still dull though. Drum solo's should never be allowed on records, let alone a gig. Still, classic stuff from a classic band.

A nice album with highlights on Sitting on Top of the World and its marvellous final solos, Pressed Rat and Warthog being a proto Blur's Parklife, Politician (the best imo) with its surrounding time signature and also being a proto-QOTSA and Born Under a Bad Sign the grooviest.

Unfortunately none of these are great songs.

This is the band's best album, not Disraeli Gears. The live tracks show what a great live band they were.

An epic in the annals of blues rock, hard rock and psychedelia. White Room, Crossroads, Politician, Born Under a Bad Sign...it's just one great song after another.

Almost as strong as Disraeli Gears... They still sounded like a cohesive group at this point.

The studio sides are mostly great; the live sides (except for "Crossroads") could use editing. Still a classic. Highlights: "White Room," "Crossroads," "Born Under a Bad Sign," and the amazing "Deserted Cities of the Heart."
