4 stars This album might be a work that exists at a slight position in the history of the music of Hancock. If it thinks about the flow to "Head Hunters" that is his representative's work, it gives the impression in the blind spot. His creation and activity in age of Blue Note. And, his work in Warnerbros. A general, dark, heavy impression might have been given in this age. However, there was a peculiar road where only he was able to create it in various Jazz/Fusion that greatly revolutionized and derived from Miles in the 70's. After he had contracted to CBS in 1972, this album became the first album in CBS. It is ..sound.. finished though the route is in the flow that passes "Clothing" from "Mwandshi". be refined further with the cultivated idea as the weapon with ..the composition.. Miles DavisHancock expresses "Confusion" and "Order" well in this album. The keyboard and the idea that he performs are expressed by "Rain Dance" with those elements. The confusion drawn out from the pattern of the sound like the game has changed into the ease of the sound that will be repeated before long. And, the spirit of Jazz advances coming in succession without the sense of incompatibility. The tune connected in shape to receive it shows wide by "Hidden Shadows". I think that some order exists also also in this tune where mysterious atmosphere drifts. Do the float of the activity of an analog synthesizer in the space with other musical instruments coming in succession. "Hornets" creates one space in union with the dash feeling the change to music. The power that they invented might have been an answer to a reformative element and existing music if it imagined it from a situation at that time as the challenge. The energy of the work might have had power to develop further though it was a content thought that it was difficult to forecast Head Hunters connected as follows in this album.
