|This album saw the band moving away from the more Southern Rock sound of previous releases, although it is still eveident in places. This was the first of their albums I really got into, specifically for the brilliant 'Penthouse Pauper' which I first heard on a compilation album in 1980 called 'Precious Metal'(which also featured other Jez Faves the Mighty New England, Axe & Storm). Anyway this is very good album,with the aforementioned 'Penthouse Pauper' being the the albums 'Masterpiece'.|

|This is my favorite Point Blank CD and one of my all-time favorites by anyone. I was introduced to Point Blank when Mean To Your Queenie was receiving a little radio play. I bought the vinyl LP and liked every track so I collected the earlier releases and the ones that followed as they came out. Penthouse Pauper is a classic tour de force and deserves to be heard by anyone that hasn't had the pleasure of experiencing it yet.|

|The original release year for this was 1979. Martin Popoff reviewed this album and rated it 6 for "heaviness" and 8 for how good he thinks it is. These are some of his comments : "...Airplay finds the band still rocking, Penthouse Pauper sounding like Moxy (hmm... these Canadian legends' biggest territory was San Antonio), Louisiana Leg like Ted Nugent and Thunder And Lightning chiming in with a bit of snappy funk metal similar to Derringer '75 to '77.|

|More of M.Popoff's review: "And it's killing me , but for the life of me, I can't remember who covered Mean To Your Queenie and Danger Zone, but these are two very recognizable rock tracks that somebody had a hit with. Damn. Anyway, both rule, the former being very Hatchet and the latter very Little Feat, both bright, rhythmic, smart. Again, the thrust is still intrinsically southern guitar rock but the power is somewhat diminished by the production, as well as those CSNY/Doobie harmony vocals.|

|Popoff's comments conclude: "Ends with the band's most experimental track yet, Changed My Mind being a jazzy psych ballad that one would have thought out of reach for a bunch of axe-slinging rock 'n' roll long-hairs."|

|Decent album with still some southern rock in it and that's a fact because is the mark of the band...probably rockier than the common southern rock style that they specifically performed..."Mean To Your Queenie" sounds like an old style Blackfoot song,a goodie one...some other highlights are "Two Time Looser","Penthouse Pauper","Louisiana Leg" & "Thunder And Lightning"...just a right release...78/100|
