BBC Music said: “Their collective chutzpah was captured via the album sleeve.
Rarely has a cover so presciently reflected the monumental influence its contents
would have in the years that followed. Reaching number 2 in the UK charts in 1970,
it made the band and pretty much carved out the template for heavy rock.”
