3 stars Almost all-strings acoustic album by one of greatest jazz fusion guitarist. Just few brass sounds are added from small strings orchestra. McLaughlin plays excellent guitar and all music is full of Mediterranean breeze, baroque monumentalism and neoclassical cold beauty.

This album is hardly a jazzy one, even if using some elements of it. Sound is very warm and well-rounded, down tempo music is very relaxed. Some orchestrated moments bring you almost in philharmonic hall.

The centre of all album is three -part Thieves and Poets composition, other four songs are less interesting and are more fillers there. I believe that acoustic classic guitar lovers will be happy with this release, as well as McLaughlin fans. For all others album sounds a bit too polished and too far not only from jazz-rock, but even from jazz.
