This album provides some of the exhilarating music I've ever heard. The guitar playing is out of this world, showing what a great guitarist John McLaughlin is, being able to produce "gamakas" (note decorations in Indian music) so beautifully and with such great speed. The percussion is some of the best you will ever hear.
