4 stars After long list of first pop-funk, after - disco-funk recordings, Hancock returned back to more jazzy music (with a help of huge list of great jazz and fusion musicians).

You can feel his jazz-funk roots there, but all music is better polished, balanced. There are no more his funky rhythmic constructions and sharp corners, but more contemporary-jazz oriented sound. And if slight feel of more commercial oriented sound is everywhere, it is a great music again. Deep bass line ( Rony Carter, Jaco Pastorius participated in one song), excellent drums and percussion (Alphonse Mouzon and Tony Williams between others), complex sound and accessible music in total.

One of rare perfect examples of jazz fusion from 80-s. Much more later another jazz fusion hero from early eighties Billy Cobham will turn to similar sound as well!

Recommended to all jazz fusion lovers as one of the best fusion album from 80-s!
