Rare 1972 Purple Label Gatefold Original. “No Alternative Was Jonesy's Debut Album, And Its Title Track Best Summed Up Their Aspirations Of Fusing Improvisational Jazz To Prog Rock With Barely A Thought To Commercial Consequences. A Muscular Piece With A Tough Political Message, It Spills Back And Forth Between Prog And Jazz Over A Stop-Start Rhythm. Equally Socially Conscious Is "Pollution," An Epic Track That Showcased The Band At Its Best. It Begins With Quiet, Moody Organ And Mellotron Pooling Around The Heavy Lyrics, Then Builds In Intensity Until Suddenly The Band Breaks Into Bright, Racing Prog Rock. There's A Chime To The Guitar Foreshadowing U2, While Jazz Bassist David Paull Sets The Stage For The Later Success Of New Order As He Takes The Lead During The Second Half Of The Number, Occasionally Joined By John Evan Jones Surfy Guitar. Equally Notable Was The Band's Use Of Mellotron, Which Adds Evocative And Exotic Shadings To Many Of Their Tracks.” – Jo-Anne Green, AMG
