Personal Review:
 So, this is another one of those highly sought after records by a lot of people, and it goes for large amounts of money in auctions on eBay and such. I, however, got my copy for extremely cheap – and hey, it’s signed.

 The album opens with the song “Let’s Try to Do Something New” and the guitar playing is pretty good, I’m liking it. Kolb has a pretty neat voice, the song itself is different, it kind of keeps changing tempos and styles as it continues on. After that comes the track “Kiss Me” which seems to take a different turn from the first track, and it begins to go down a more bluesy sound. It was definitely a different type of track. “Travelin’ Woman” comes next, and we’re back onto that folk sound, and hey, it’s good! I like this, it’s softer, but listenable. It’s definitely the best track this far. Up next comes “Demon From An Ocean” and hey, it’s another pretty decent track, the first two weren’t that good, but the album seems to be progressing, and that drumming is pretty nice. Yup, this one is my favorite track so far, everything about this one is great. The A-Side ends with the song “Stoned Again” and it’s filled with nice piano playing, and the vocals are pretty nice too.

 The B-Side opens with the title track, “Take Off Your Clothes” and it’s not all that impressive, really repetitive, and stuff. Not quite good. After comes “Gypsy” and well, its different again, this album isn’t overly impressive to me, I do got to say the musicianship is pretty great though. But that’s about it. “I Like the Drums” comes next, and the opening is nothing short of impressive with all that musicianship and sounding like a sci-fi movie opening, after that though the song is pretty dull and boring. The album ends with the song “There’s a Better Way” and it goes back to that folky sound, so hey! That’s a plus, other than that, the album is pretty average.
