Bafflingly underrated third album from the Detroit prepunkers whose ship never came in. Their first album didn’t get free-jazz as well as it thought it did; the second couldn’t go pop to save its life. But this thing is a scorcher: deft, thunderous hard rock created when it was way too late and nobody cared. —Joe Gross
