5 stars This record is realy a for star album, but i had to give a five star in this one because of the poorly cotation that he had... As it was sayd, the quality of the recording is realy poor, but for the 70's i dont think that is so bad after all... And we have to remind that Holdsworth was not so famous at that time... I only think that the frist image of an record should be the quality of the composition, in a sense of the technics, harmony and melody, moods and fellings; and i believe that this album has all of this qualitys, and i can say that is one of the finnest's album of Holdsworth. I think that those who "REALY" enjoyed the Gong albuns with Holdsworth (expresso 2, leave it open, etc...) will see the quality of this album, and of course, thos who enjoyed the jazz fusion stille... Take a good listeng at this album and see what i mean...
Henrock | 5/5 |
