4 stars New line-up with Narada Michael Walden and Jan Hammers brings new dimensions to this album. The songs are generally calmer than on its predecessor album. I feel that the guitar is less present on this album than before also because the keyboards are sometimes handled by both Hammer and Middleton. Although the compositions are of high-quality, I find here less instrumental magicianship than on Blow by Blow. Blue wind is the collaboration between Hammer and Beck containing no other musicians. Love is green features the acoustic guitar and is a welcome addition. Overall, this an album worth acquiring and exploring for any proghead that likes the latter calmer 70's fusion.
