2 stars If you tune into this one expecting more blistering, lightspeed, 1000 MPH, fret melting guitar work from the resident guitar guru then you're in for a major let down. This is John McLaughlin's second attempt in the 1980's to resurrect the Mahavishnu name and despite the array of electronic equipment employed, from drum interfaces to digital synths, there are only brief moments of false hope here. Apart from some occassional speed riffing on both electric and acoustic guitars these compositions really go nowhere. Virtuoso bass player Jonas Hellborg with whom Mclaughlin toured with as a duo and ex- Miles Davis sax man Bill Evans can't even save the day . At best this album is only mildly interesting for the curious.
