Flo and Eddie: Flo and Eddie

Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 7 June 1973

Flo & Eddie's second album is a much more complex undertaking than their first and for the most part it succeeds admirably. Where Kaylan and Volman's initial LP was largely a collection of straightforward original pop-rock, the ex-Turtles now extend their reach with some variegated cover versions (from Phil Spector to Peter Skellern), a potent dose of the onstage buffoonery that characterizes their sets on the Alice Cooper tour, and high-voltage hard rock.
