Everything about the music is coated in a dense, smothering atmosphere in a good wayas if it is all emanating from a small box rather than the band at the front of the room.
The recording displays the same ponderous, cloistered, roadhouse blues edge of the Doorsand they share some of the Band 's interest in old-time ambience, evident in the wonderful, rolling Ray Charles piano of "Smokey Joe's," and the perfectly placed soul horn charts of "Moratorium Waltz. The songwriting -- nine originals plus a lulling Moody Blues -like cover of Donovan 's "Jersey Thursday" -- is solid throughout.
The ballads, Junji - Alphane Moon / Superfluid - Earworm Subscription Series. Five make up an uncommon majority of the album, veer into soft psych territory to a greater degree than the more propulsive songs.

His phrasing is so grounded in the soul aesthetic that the music fairly buzzes with wrenching emotion. His drumming, too, is wondrous, and his dexterous timekeeping spikes the music with a mystical, jazzy vibe on songs such as "I Didn't Try" and "21 Years," while Tim Doyle 's Hammond B3 work is never less than sensational. Hard Heart Singin' is plenty resonant to stand next to the B list, if not the top-level hard rock albums of the era.
