Album 'Take It Or Leave It' certainly rocks and rolls too, but starts to suffer from some of the fashion faux pas the '70s were known for, shall we say. Way too much honky tonk piano this time around, and overproduced arrangements. The psych side of things is long gone. But it has got its moments though. And several of the bonus tracks found on this disc most definitely live up to the killer standards of disc one ("I Was Down" and "The Jam Factory"). Fairly hard garage driven, semi-commercial rock, with some punk moves, and a few rural rock influenced cuts. Sung mostly in English, but with a few French vocal tracks.
