The Truth
5 stars You want s'more crazy good electric Miles? This may be better than even Bitches Brew!

These pieces of work were released in 1973 although most of the recording took place in 69 and 70 which was an amazing time for jazz music. To me, bringing the electric instrumentation into jazz was one of the greatest things that could happen to modern music and this album is one of the great reasons why.

The overall feel of this album is sheer beauty, Miles trumpet playing over electric guitar and various other noises and as simple as it sounds, you get a really amazing sound from it.

The greatest tracks are the ones McLaughlin plays on, (although their really isn't a weak track on the album) his presence really electrifies (pun intended) the albums power as a piece of music.

But Miles on the trumpet, man... You cannot find a better trumpeteer. Anywhere. He is one of the greatest musicians to every lay his hand on an instrument and when he had this psychedelic shift, his work became true pieces of art.

For fans of Bitches Brew and Get Up With It, five stars in my book.
