Hallelujah, Canned Heat's third studio album, isn't quite as strong as the two which preceded it. Sure, there are some very good songs on the album, but, on the whole, the band sounds a little less tight and a little less focused than on previous efforts.
"Same All Over," the album's opener is the gem of the album. It, more than anything, recalls the finely-honed, perfectly-distorted blues rock of Canned Heat's previous albums. The rest of the album, while not a mess, is less impressive than previous outings. This is a good album from a band that can, and has, made great albums.
