4 stars Of the three Bill Connors solo albums I own, this one has his best compositions. Not content with just soloing, Connors here shows that he can also write a fine melody.

His sound here is somewhere between Pat Metheny (just about every fusion guitarist at that time had to try to imitate his sound) and Allan Holdsworth (Connors' fluidity and ability to solo around the most complex chord patterns always bring him to mind). Bassist Tom Kennedy (later known for his work with Planet X) simply astounds with some of his crisp bass lines. And drummer Dave Weckl is always workmanlike whenever I've heard him.

So this is another worthy fusion album from this Return To Forever alumnus.

Evolver | 4/5 |
