5 stars Aaah, home at last. Let me start this off by saying that this is in no way the weakest of RTF's albums. This album simply cuts the wait down for the fuzzy funk line to speed. If you are trying to briefly explain why jazz-fusion is superior to the average commercial jazz or rock band, than this is an absolute must for the music library. RTF here realized that the public had come to the conclusion that they are some of the best musicians to ever live, so they could just play. I don't feel too overpowered here by any one person in particular, and the transitions from the deep confines of fast jazz to the more trippy synth sounds, which we all love, sound EFFORTLESS. I don't like to go into song by song explanatonaire's, excuse my French, here but the highlight is definitely the entire album. Don't pick this apart as I'm sure some of you talentless bashers will do day and night, just sit back and enjoy. This is Return To Forever's goodbye for ever... masterpiece.
