3 stars I have to agree to an extent with the "multiple personality" comment, except that I dion;pt mind the blander stuff. Wish there were more nuclear burn, though.

As far as the adventurous/hit split he mentions, it wasn't as rigid as that -not yet, anyway. Rhesus Perplexus and Algon had Collins on drums, and are among the best things BX did; Rhesus is, for me, one of the more underappreciated pieces, probably because it is so flagrantly Metheny-ish. Collins shows a delicacy and jazz-timing - in the absence of actual "swing" - that merits repeated listening. and So To f is a simple tune, but it has that exultant Collins, Hand-in-Hand feel - not dark enough for Mahavishnu, but makes me very, very happy. And it is in a unique, busy groove of nine; done live, Phil sings over the eight section while playing some very, very busy drums - a real feat!

But, yeah, Phil made it clear he wasn't really into the fusion thing for long - the split was inevitable - fun while it lasted.
