5 stars McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra more or less took the mantle from Miles Davis as the vanguard of experimental jazz-fusion. The Inner Mounting Flame is the band's debut, and I can't think of a better debut jazz album. It's got a distinct sound, great jams, complex arrangements, and memorable melodies. John McLaughlin was an inhuman guitar player for his time. His unique, angluar chords and solos (at high speeds no less) were quite remarkable. The rest of the band holds their own right up with Johnny. The band does a lot of jamming, but they frequently check-in with the main riff or another composed line of some sort to keep from going off on long tangents. Considering the complexity and angularity of the sound, it's rather easy to get into for reasons like that. I don't want to waste your time with more reviewing. This album r00lz and you ought to own it.
