5 stars My favorite Bill Bruford Solo release, and one of my favorite Jazz/Rock recordings at all. Not to mention def. my favorite Jazz/Rock records with a female vocal.

This Bruford first solo, shows a compleete change in style, compared to the work he had done with King Crimson & Yes. He has now moved from a Rock drummer, playing an extreemly complicated rock drum. To a straight forward Jazz drummer. An a great Jazz composer, quite a few tracks are his creations alone, even the lyrics.

All that said about Bruford, what makes this masterpiese work that well is not his doing alone. Allan Holdsworth play a super guitar, both Lead and Rythm, Jeff berlin on bass is just great. The Horn by Kenny Wheeler, The Key's by Dave Stewart, it all ads to the mix. On top of this amasing vocal preformance by Annette Peacock.

Style wise the album is quite varied, from up tempo sections with a clear Rock influence to the softest Jazz. All together it comes out rather laid back. Far from demanding in the way some Jazz/Rock recordings was in the 70's (Mahavisnu & Weather Report in particular). More in the line of Return To Forever. But still in its very own right.

If you like Jazz/Rock this is a must have recording. Bruford beeing THE most important prog drummer, This beeing IMO the best Jazz/Rock recording he ever did.

Just got to give my first Jazz/Rock review a 5 star
