4 stars In 1981-82 I was learning how to play the drums, and as I never took formal lessons,my "teachers" were many drummers which I have listened in rock, prog rock and jazz-rock albums, and also seeing drummers playing live in concerts in videos and in venues in my country. So, with the hope of learning something, I bought this album, and I wasn`t disappointed! Bill Bruford really deserves the place he has in prog rock and jazz rock music. He is also a very good composer, even if he says in the back cover notes for this album that he still had a lot to learn, as he composes his music mostly using the piano.The musicians who play with him in this album are also very good. The best songs in this album are: "Sample and Hold" (with very complicated drums, and I never learned how to play some of the drum parts, which reflect Bruford`s very good technique!), "Feels Good to me", "Either End of August", "If you can`t stand the heat" and "Adios a la Pasada (Goodbye to the past"). This album has a very good recording, and the mixing is also very good, with Bruford`s drums and percussion mixed at the "front". If some readers and reviewers are trained or not trained drummers, this is one of those albums with very good drums, and a good example of jazz- rock music. Two or three months ago, Bruford came to my country with his band "Earthworks" and played one or two concerts which I couldn`t attend. But he was interviewed by one T.V. channel, and even played a musical piece with the jazz band of the programme (I think it is called the "Eugenio Toussaint Trio").
