This album has some good moments, but overall, it is too groove and pop oriented for my jazz fusion tastes.

The lineup on this recording is probably the finest ensemble of gun slingers ever assembled. To have them this restrained is a sin. The two previous studio albums by this combination of players (Eye of the Beholder and Inside Out) absolutely smoke, so this final offering by this incarnation of the group was somewhat of a let down for me.

I really dig this recording, one of the best that features this lineup. I guess egos can stay together. This is one of the only settings where I can tolerate Fank Gambale. I recommend it!
