4 stars Third Corea's Elektric Band's album is real return to form. After weak second album, the same team of musicians recorded realy strong jazz fusion album. Yes, in many places you can feel pop-orientation there, but in common the music has it's soul, it's melody and is professional in it's techniques.

Differently from first two albums, the third one is much more melodic. And not only this - there are plenty of solos of both guitar and sax players. If before Corea used all musicians just as additional sound for his electric keyboards ( and for sure it wasn't enough for good balanced music), we have real band of partners there. Everyone won because of that: the music got it's blood and soul.

OK, it's electric jazz fusion from late 80-s, so don't expect Latin scent and warm romantism of early RTF, or melted rock oriented fusion of late RTF. It's a pleasant,but cold synth/electric sound with feelable commercial orientation from "plastic world" era. But as for it's time, it's a competent and pleasant album.
