3 stars Hmm........ Not exactly what I expected from this band. The monster riff maisters Mahavishnu Orchestra goes full symphony orchestra on this album.

The contrast to the first two albums is pretty big. Not to mention the follow up album to this one. The full orchestra bit in the middle who goes on like in a film music score. There is also a female vocalist here on one of the songs. That is the less interesting half of this album. Thankfully, this album also includes an aural feast with John McLaughlin's guitars and Jean-Luc Ponty electric violins who gives some good hints about the band from the previous two albums. This album also include some very potent jazz too.

As an album, Apocalypse is indeed an oddity. It has far more in common with a symph prog concept album than a Mahavishnu Orchestra album. The music though is good though. Apocalypse is by no means a turkey. It is just a bit odd though. A good oddity is my conclusion.
