Parachute, released in 1970, is the fifth studio album by the English rock band The Pretty Things, following . Sorrow and preceding Freeway Madness. It is their first album without guitarist Dick Taylor.
This album holds its own along with the Pretty Things' "Parachute" as one of their best. The Pretty Things have always produced excellent and interesting music, although their albums are a bit uneven. But this is not the case with "Freeway Madness", which features some of the best rock and roll of its time, much thanks to the writing of Phil May and Pete Tolson. Tolson also shines with some brilliant lead guitar licks. It's a shame he didn't stick with the band longer. Phil May's growling vocals are excellent here.

I'd rather listen to the Pretty Things and Freeway Madness instead. However, the one thing that separates this album from any kind of CSN comparisons is the extremely good guitar playing that rules over most of Freeway Madness. This is definitely not your ordinary, run of the mill guitar work. This is some really sincere and tastefully played guitar playing of the highest caliber. An interesting album by the Pretty Things. One minute I think I'm listening to some smooth country number. The next minute the music changes gears and turns into heavy glam-rock with guitar solos thrown in for good measure. I guess that's the main thing that makes the Pretty Things such an interesting band overall.
After raging through R&B early in their career, then exploring the limits of psychedelia, the Pretty Things changed their direction with Freeway Madness, which in retrospect seems like the first part of a musical trilogy (along with Silk Torpedo and Savage Eye). With a huge change in personnel and the team of Phil May and Pete Tolson doing most of the writing, the sound featured John Povey's keyboards, while the lush harmonies that had buoyed Parachute became a mainstay of the sound, which turned decidedly more American radio-friendly
