5 stars You haven't heard drums being played until you have heard Billy Cobham playing them and his collaboration with John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra in the early 70's launched him a solo career after their first split. This is his legendary debut album and teamed up with top notch musicians, notably guitar virtuoso Tommy Bolin who rips it out great on all of the tracks, Cobham's compositions are tight, funky and highly memorable, including the massive fusion hit "Stratus" who is one of my favorite songs ever and the holy grail among fusion drummers for decades now. Cobham is a profilic soloist and some short solos occur between several of the tracks, and while they doesn't really add much to the rest of the material they do display Cobham's amazing dextery around the kit, his speed is out of this world combined with sharply polished technique. A drummers bible and complete gem of 70's fusion music, massively influential and essential, with amazing musicianship.
