Sound: The Guess Who have a great rock/blues sound. The blues is mixed with hard rock on pretty much every track, yet it is still a lot different then Led Zeppelin. Randy Bachman proved what a guiness he is with his killer riffs and blazing solos. This band is not like anyone else. // 10

Lyrics: Burton Cummings was one of the best singers of all time and he proved it on this CD. Randy's blazing guitar wasn't the only thing worth listening to on this CD. Cumming's singing was also increadibly good. However, not all of the songs were written by this band. "Takin' Care Of Buiseness" was written by Bachman Turner Overdrive and I think a few others were too. // 9

Overall Impression: Even though they didn't write it the best track in my mind was deffinatly "Takin' Care Of Business". The rock stood out more then the blues on this track, and I thing Randy Bachman sung instead of Burton Cummings, and the guitar solo had to Bachman's best. This album should be in the hands of any rock fan. // 10
