5 stars Brand X are for me the best and the main very important band of my life. I knew them when i was very young and when their albums were not sold, during the 80th, a very bad period of only commercial aims for everyone in the world, more than others. This album is with their 1st one and the side a of Livestock the best you can hear of what really fusion can be for a rock band who involves into electrical jazz. It was my personal door towards a world beyond the old progressive. You can hear here also the best mixture of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Lifetime, Return to Forever and Gong with A. Holdsworth. They never annoied me because any emotion is strong and true, in any experiment you can feel the blood and the concept behind. And what you can feel is an extreme JOY and a great sense of humour with a lisergic melancony. Try to find all these 3 together somewhere else so easily .-)
