Peace for a Change

Under Appreciated

The Crystal Mansion has R&B, funk, country, psych, progressive, and pop influences sprinkled among its 10 tracks. The stronger material is on the album’s second side, with “Earth People” preceded by a foreboding trio of introspective tracks, “Someone Oughta Turn Your Head Around”, “Boogieman” and “Let Me Get Straight Again” (with the first and last being penned by the band as a whole), followed by the calming “Peace for a Change”. But Side 1 also has several good cuts, such as the opening song “There Always Will be More” and the catchy “Satisfied”.
