5 stars This is the best fusion album of the 1970's. It is also the most fusion out of all the 70's fusion albums. In "Romantic Warrior" we have a FUSION of classical music, funk, hard and prog rock, and jazz, all tied together with a latin flavor.

The bass playing of Stanley Clarke is phenomenal and he shows off why he is the best in the game. Al Di Meola's guitar work is impeccable to say the least. Fast and furious with latin-flamenco laced licks played on a distorted les paul-magnificent! Lenny White holds down the groove with his hard hitting funkesque beats. Last but not least, Chick Corea(probably the best jazz composer in the last 50 years-along with Davis, Mingus, and Hancock). Chick's Piano/keys are mind blowing, tasteful, and classy. He seems to always play the right notes to accentuate the mood of the music (more so than Jordan Rudess-haha!).

This album is a perfect 10 (or should I say 5). This is most definitely an essential piece to your collection!!!!!!
