5 stars A Great Album From The Last Of Alphonso Johnson's Three Album Run. The Highlight On This Would Be Earthtales Suite Which Is A Great Song With Some Excellent Playing From The Musicians. There Are A Few Other Good Songs On Here Such As Summer Solstice, Follow Your Heart & Face Blaster, & the epic 9 minute long Earthtales Suite.

The Vocals On This Album Fit Very Well For Theme For This Album & It Takes You On A Journey With These Awesome Tracks. What Also Surprised Me Was The Album Was Very Proggy With The Intro & The Final Composition Being How The Album Begins & Ends The Same.

Some Brilliant Musicianship On Here With The Lead Guitar Solos & Johnson's Medlodic Jazzy Bass Playing. Also, This Album Was Produced Very Well. It's A Shame That Most Fusion Fans Ignore Alphonso Johnson's Solo Albums, Especially This One As It Shows His Experimental Elements With Bringing in Some Progressive Rock Instead Of Keeping It To The Jazz Funk As His Two Previous Albums.

Overall, This one of Alphonso Johnson's better albums In My Own Opinion With This Just Behind Moonshadows.
