1. Faster Than The Speed Of Life B2. Tighten Up Your Wig C+3. None Of Your Doing B-4. Spiritual Fantasy B-5. Don't Step On The Grass, Sam B6. 28 B-7. Magic Carpet Ride A8. Disappointment Number (Unknown) C+9. Lost And Found By Trial And Error B+10. Hodge, Podge, And Strained Through A Leslie B11. Resurrection B12. Reflections N/AI already knew in advance none of the material would surpass or match up to "Magic Carpet Ride". The tracks on side one lack flavor. Take the pallid blues rock of "Tighten Up Your Wig". John Kay's voice is not strong or enthusiastic enough either, evident on "None Of Your Doing" and the dreary "Spiritual Fantasy". There are two average cuts of hard rock—"Faster Than The Speed Of Life" and "Don't Step On The Grass, Sam". Side two shows more promise. "28" sounds very unlike them as it's poppy and not sung by the more gruff Kay. Then there's the suitably-titled "Disappointment Number". "Lost And Found By Trial And Error" is lively and adorned with guitar and Hammond hooks, as is the similar "Resurrection". "Hodge, Podge, And Strained Through A Leslie" is a decent rock jam. "Reflections" is a negligible closer.

Another fine album by Steppenwolf. The second side is a long suite that tells a story in an impressive variety of musical idioms. On side 1, Faster than the Speed of Life rocks but is not one of Mars Bonfire's (formerly Dennis Edmonton) best efforts. 28 works despite being sung by Jerry Edmonton instead of John Kay for some reason. Magic Carpet Ride is a timeless classic.My personal favorite is Don't Step on the Grass, Sam, which has been covered by other artists, most notably Govt Mule. Most people (i.e., young people) don't know the history and assume this pro-marijuana song refers to Uncle Sam's efforts against the drug. I believe this LA band was referring to notoriously anti-pot LA mayor Sam Yorty. "Nazi Joe" (also referenced in the song) was right-wing TV talk show host Joe Pyne. This was the group's high-water mark, before the very disappointing At Your Birthday Party.
