3 stars Ayers Rock were an excellent jazz rock/fusion band, simply one of the best to come out of the Australia/New Zealand area. Their second album Beyond is all the evidence one needs to validate the above statement.

Now when I first got Hot Spell I was, like the previous commenter RobyB, very excited to give this baby a spin. There was a let down on the first listen, but the album really does grow on you.

In my opinion this album's problem is that it sounds too much like early Santana at times. Its not necessarily a bad thing, theres just no comparison to their first two albums.

Overall, its a great album with a lot more Santana influences and any Ayers Rock fans will still find it enjoyable. 3 Stars.
