5 stars If you want the best work of Mahavishnu get this album, it is by far their best work with the classic line up of amazing musicians. Mahavishnu adds more rock into what they do more than like a weather report or early Return to forever. Some of my favorite tracks are Birds of Fire title track and opener, a very intense jazz rock song. Another favorite of mine is One word, Billy Coham's drumming is pure genius on this album and especially on this track, this one also features some awesome great Jan Hammer work on the keys. Open Country is all Jerry Goodman on Violin, this song has a country feel to it.And John Mclaughlin guitar playing is so ahead of its time, this band is one of the jazz fusion giants and Progressive rock should own Birds Of Fire. You don't have to be into Jazz to enjoy this album. 5 stars fusion at its best
