    Great sounding LP without being too 'digital' based upon the use of so much synth and drum machines. Great details, depth and clarity without sounding too sharp. Glad I got it!

      Hi, I need help finding a good sounding CD of this album with a good dynamic range that’s not really compressed.
      Thanks, help is appreciated.

        That is about the most ignorant comment I have seen. You need to get out more.

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