4 stars If this album stayed as heavy as the first section of Solarization, I might be calling this a masterpiece. But it is still a damn fine album. The other sections of the above mentioned piece are not bad, and it does come back to reprise the heavy intro.

The Brecker Brothers always make up an exceptional horn section, and here they offer no exception to that description. And Abecrombie provides some hot guitar solos over Cobham's always fime drumming.

Other good tracks on this album are Total Eclipse, which builds to a fiery jam, Moon Germs with a swaying bass line which is almost as good as songs on "Spectrum", and Sea Of Tranquility, which, after a slow start, builds very nicely.

Evolver | 4/5 |
