4 stars "Unorthodox Behavior" is in line with many other top fusion albums in terms of the ever- present vituosity of its performers and the originality of the pieces. This album's enchantment is furthered by each of its track's slight mystiques as indicated by their sly titles. Very British sounding for its genre, Brand X manages to set a level of fusion that is sometimes more mellow, groove-laden approach slightly compartative to Weather Report and on a few occasions, brooding, raucous music similar to Mahavishnu Orchestra. Beyond that, Phil Collin's drum playing is overly impressive as well as John Goodsall's guitar playing. The inluences are obvious here (Corea/Return To Forever, Weather Report, and at times Mahavishnu) but the songs and style speak a bit differently than the others. This album is intricate, lush and definitely fun. A must for any fusion/jazz-rock fan. This album should not be too hard to find on cd or vinyl so i suggest you go to your local record store and find it.
