3 stars Miles Davis return to form after his long break in music. Even if with different team of musicians, the music has its roots in his works of late 70-s. Half of the album is up-tempo electric fusion, with accents on guitar and bass ( and both they sound better than just competent). New generation of fusion musicians made a really good support to Davis there on this album.

Slower (blues-based) compositions are not so interesting. I think, there are just not enough concentrated music, too bulky, not on the best Miles standard. But even like that, still listenable enough. There are many moments coming even from hard -bop era, which are incorporated in common sound quite successfully.

Even if better than average recording, album's music still sounds a bit dated, conservative and not innovative at the Davis ' standard. More connected with past, than oriented in future ( as best Davis works), this album stays still one of the last Miles Davis great electric jazz fusion albums. Not bad listening for everyone, must have work for Miles Davis electric jazz fusion fans.
