At this point, I'd have to say that this is my favorite Sco record. I wouldn't say it necessarily has his best playing, but the tunes are so great, and John's style completely delivers what the music needs. This is also the record that made me a huge Bill Stewart fan, as his drumming is so funky and right on the money (listen to "Dark Blue"). If you're taking a long trip somewhere, slap this in your car stereo or Walkman and just chill...
