4 stars The only electric guitar-less jazz fusion super group from 70-s released their 3-rd album in a bit different style, than previous masterpiece, "I Sing The Body Electric". If at previous works they were more free-jazz, experimental and some electronic sound based, there they obviously changed direction to more groove based music.

Excellent interplay between Joe Zawinul's keyboards and Wayne Shorter's sax are strongly supported and framed but big rhythm section. The music is still far from Herbie Hancock funk series from similar period, but the first step toward is done there.

Happily, compositions are great, songs have innovative structure, and album is far from boring or uninteresting. Even more - some pieces are just as great as WR best compositions ever.

Possibly, it is more question of taste as well. I prefer their earlier, more experimental sound, but can really enjoy funky groove of this album as well.

Not the best, but one between Weather Report greater works. Strong 4+.
