2 stars McLaughlin tried to use once again Mahavishnu Orchestra fame for marginal record (recorded and released originally in Italy). Not very successful action, though.

Even if musicianship there is of high level (technically), it hardly goes far than just musicianship itself. Plenty of electronic keyboards, polished sound, flirting with pop- electronics, even hip-hop rhythms, light sound, some old jazz-tricks - explosive combination, not very unusual for 80-s though.

As a result, you have something in between of easy jazzy listening, some bombastic, but out of place keyboards, guitar attacks, borrowed from archives, and common very cheesy feeling. Bil Evans, Jonas Hellborg participation and few funky grooves doesn't help. Release for collectors mainly.
