Note: There is a lot of French spoken on album which may or may not factor in your purchasing decision making process via your frontal lobe cerebral hemisphere. Very weird music these guys have lost their f****** mind.

It’s short..very short. It’s really a single album being sold as a double album. Look at the times I wrote, there 4-8 minutes shorter than your typical LP side. Your being “hoodwinked” if that’s still a word...:) also who wants to Flip an album after 12 ... See full review

I have every single recording Pat Metheny has ever put out and I believe this is number one. It is not mainstream music. Closer to Free Jazz.

How do you buy a very expensive Vibraphone, take years and years to learn how to play it and end up playing on one album? Did this guy end up in jail or did he have a brain aneurysm?

Very Good album (not great)...Side 2 is primarily a lot of drumming and percussion
(There’s atleast 3 drummers, too bad it’s not 3 bassists) work which pulls the rating down some. Sound quality is fair to pretty good as the liner notes mention the ... See full review

Careful...a lot of Malfatti’s recent output has been plagued by minimalism. He plays a note then nothing for 2 minutes and then plays another note. Quite the contrary to the old Radu where he would blow his brains out. Don’t criticize me I am buying his ... See full review

When you go from Greg Lake to Adrian Belew you drop 1.5 to 2 stars out of 5 automatically and those are a lot of points to lose on a 5 point scale. Adrian Belew blows. See how that rhymes.

Typical recording coming off the 1970s and entering the 1980’s. Rock beat and all. Not good. Techno sounding...welcome to the 1980’s and welcome to a major drop off in quality of music. If you disagree my copy is up for sale.

Very similar to a lot of his recent albums (i.e “The Way Up” LP) a lot of overcooked Orchestral arrangements. Not a lot you haven’t heard before but still good. A little disappointed.
