BJ's final CTI album is surprisingly inoffensive. His reading of "Pure Imagination" is pure schlock, but what did you expect with that awful source material? Most of the album is pretty decent, even if it's uncharacteristically unremarkable. One thing you can say about Bob James records is that even if you hate the music, you have to admit that it's usually melodic and memorable. That isn't always the case here, but that's not at all a bad thing. Several of the tracks are good solid disco/fusion from a guy who practically invented the genre.

I'd recommend most of this along with Touchdown and Grand Piano Canyon as examples of the good, listenable music that James is capable of. Very few of his records are good all the way through, so you take what you can get :)

This is one of my all time favorite records and I think the best of Bob James; I like it so much I own two copies! You'll hear samples of this record all over modern hip hop. 'El Verano' and 'Nights are Forever Without You' are excellent and what make this album really worth it, but the rest of it is pretty solid as well; easily up to the same standard as BJ2 and BJ3. It definitely deserves 5/5 in my opinion; I think it is underrated here.
