4 stars 12 years later and I have to totally agree with Sean review (see below) - a magnificent fusion album, the opus Magnum of this short-lived most talented band deserves without a doubt 4 stars and misses only marginally the fifth. What a magnificent find (thanks to PA, I must pleasantly add), so many years have passed and I come to discover a recording from the early seventies that can still surprise and enthrall me as this did, lucky me !

The wind arrangements are rich without being overbearing, the percussions are delicately supportive of the general dynamics, the vocals are just right and pleasant, the collective musicianship up there at the top with the best, all this and more contributes to a very lively yet relaxed and good spirited global feeling.

Quinino | 4/5 |
