4 stars Brand X debut is really great album! A bit different from American jazz-rock from early 70-s, it shows strongest sides of British school. And you can even hear some funk and groove there!

This album obviously has two heroes - and one of them is Phill Collins! Yes, no mistake! Generally I have very critical opinion on Collins musicianship, but on this album he shows excellent musicianship (ok, not very original - obviously influenced by Billy Cobham though). Never before or after Phil was such a great drummer as on this album! Another hero is fretless bassist Percy Jones and I will like his playing for years ahead!

Fresh, energetic, inspired fusion played by team of very skilled musicians - it's the best characteristic of this album's music. Besides of jazz-rock schemes you will hear prog rock elements in many places, what is characteristic moment for British (and European) jazz-rock for 70-s.

Really great work - and I believe not only for fusion fans. Every Collins fan must have this album just to hear Phil's best drumming ever.
