The Raspberries: Side 3

Metal Mike Saunders, Rolling Stone, 11 October 1973

SINCE THEIR last time out, the Raspberries must have heard Blue Ash, or some vaguely threatening noises from the other side of Ohio, because a lot of Side 3 shows real instrumental power. Strong guitar tracks and powerful drumming dominate the album, the group apparently inching to prove they can record in other veins besides the lightweight pop of their first two LPs.
