4 stars Loaded and ready for take-off!

A stellar debut from what would become one of the most promising jazz-fusion bands from England, introducing a whole new and unique sound provided by guitarist John Goodsall's quirky compositions and Percy Jones's outstanding fretless bass playing. Phil Collins really got to show his chops on the drums here and compliments Jones masterfully, notably on the album opener "Nuclear Burn", a signature track in the band's discography. The music is groovy, very dynamic and playful all the way through and definitely the album for those who enjoy Mahavishnu Orchestra, Bill Bruford's solo work and so on (Bruford was involved with the band for a short time before his commitments with National Health and UK, but Collins style was better suited for this project if you ask me). 4.5/5

Bj-1 | 4/5 |
