Point Blank  - The Hard Way album FLAC

Evidently, the band and its producers believed Point Blank was in its element on stage, so there are three live tracks on their 1976 debut, and they're not devoted to the second side. They're just peppered throughout, which keeps the group from developing true momentum on the record. Then again, it's questionable whether they would have gained a head of steam if they crafted a full studio album since they're attempting a little bit of each hard rock style, from Purple to Bad Company to Zeppelin and BTO boogie.
