You must not be from that era to say very listenable even now! The music today and I mean 90% of it SUCKS! Those were the best days 78-92 after that you are just breathing! From Rock to Hip Hop you can't beat it with nothing today 2016 musically sucks!!!!!

Very 80s, but still very listenable. Also a pivotal album in Herbie's career (though he's had several!)
