4 stars This is a great album that Weather Report had made, but i'll give just 4 stars (if the content was about Electronic Jazz/Fusion i wold give more than 5 stars to WR if possible) for it because the quality of the sound isn't progressive rock music (i have nothing to complain about WR, i'm a great fan of their music), but a kind of electronic jazz. However this album and the 1976-1982 phase albums are very good, cording to progressive kind music, the WR previous album are a kind of funk influent music. OBS: I recomend Weather Report albums to everyone, because they have 3 great points on the band: the greatest keyboardist Joe Zawinul, with incredible arrangements, keyboard/piano solos and tones. Jaco Pastorius the one who played bass as no one, the best bass technics i've heard, versatyle bass solos, strings harmonics solos an other crazy effects. Wayne Shorter, the big lung man. He unbelieveably play's sax with an incredible stamina, making very high and sustained sounds.

Sadly Weather Report didn't got a durable drummer on the band, changing drummer a lot of times on carrier, but the best phase on drumming in WR, was in the Heavy Weather and Black Market albums. If you wanna start to hear Weather Report, i recommend the Heavy Weather record (the most famous, one of the betters) and this album Mr. Gone.
