3 stars Return to Forever part 2? Not really, as the contemporary fusion and jazz have changed with less focus on virtuosity and more of overall feeling. It's nice to hear Chick jumping on the wagon again and providing electronic keyboards again.

The record is of average quality, there are some colorless moments with no feeling but also more introspective pieces. Playing is very good, maybe I'd wish to hear a bit more guitar. Compositions are definitely below RTF average, more about mood than concrete motives.

For me, the highlights are "King Cockroach" with good RTF-like playing and dynamics, then "Silver Temple" has some killer bass and drums but is also slightly incoherent.
