4 stars This is the middle album of the trio of albums that featured Return To Forever's most famous lineup (wow - it seems like they did more) of Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Al DiMeola and Lenny White. It continues their exploration of jazz, rock, funk and latin music, with an emphasis of tight, difficult arrangements with virtuoso solos.

On the surface, many of the compositions seem simplistic, compared to the following masterpiece "Romantic Warrior". But really these guys could just burn up the studio. The title track, No Mystery is a perfect example. It starts like a typical latin fusion song, and develops into a set of complex solos from Corea, Clarke and White.

The album proves that you could not go wrong with this lineup.

Evolver | 4/5 |
