Despite the album's title, exceptionally psychedelic cover art, and the stupendous version of "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," it is really at its core a fantastic soul and blues rock album with the occasional psychedelic accent. It features awesome, gritty vocals and terrific bluesy rock guitar-playing from Javier Bátiz that sometimes calls to mind the style and tone of Jeff Beck in his days with The Yardbirds. The album also stands out for the massive and driving horn section that appears on several songs and really adds a lot of soulful "umph!" to tracks like "Hard Life." Other tracks include "The Best I Can," "Kansas City," "Blue Monday," "Lucila," "Slippin and Slidin," and "Bye Bye Baby."
