Prog Reviewer
4 stars CAB is a fusion supergroup featuring Bunny Brunel on bass, Dennis Chambers on drums, Brian Auger on keys, and Tony MacAlpine on guitar, and their first outing feels like a nostalgia trip. Their music here mainly sounds like it's from the early seventies, coming out alongside the albums of Mahavishnu, Mwandishi, and Nucleus, and otherwise sounds like a killer take on muzak. Brunel's bass is probably the best part; it certainly is the glue that holds the group together, and has many great solos. The rest of the band does very well themselves, with MacAlpine's guitar solos driving the band much like those of McLaughlin in his Orchestra. The whole record is really wonderful solos by a band who simultaneously vies to be top dog, and yet knows to give everyone a chance to shine, and to support their friends when they go off the handle. A smooth, solo driven piece of throwback fusion, it is an enjoyable listen.
