4 stars The new technology of the keyboards allowed to create new, fresh & urban atmospheres, and it is really the case here! This record is a mix between Ponty's traditional fusion with violin and complex bass, and a completely new, clean & atmospheric sound that is so present on his "Open Mind" record. Surprisingly, Ponty uses an electronic voice in some bits. The bass here in the faster parts is particularly good. Sometimes, the music flirts with a mix of fusion & relaxing New Age. The piano, the violin, the guitars, and the modern keyboards make a very varied album having smoother floating parts too. Maybe many people find the Ponty's music of the 70's a bit redundant, but be sure that "Mystical Adventures" remains an album full of surprises and varieties.
