2 stars This album is mostly inconsistent: The tracks range from fairly good to fairly bad, the trumpet play ranges from perfect placement within the track to "Guy, why is your mouth on that thing right now?" and the tracks range from somewhat upbeat (such as Cracking The Midnight Glass, which really makes me think of Led Zeppelin - Kashmir) to complete, boring droning. Make me wonder why this is in the fusion section, really.

However, the one consistent thing is that Levin has a great workout on his two instruments and is great the whole way through. Bruford's play might've joined him if he hadn't seemingly set out with the intention of being as bizarre on the drum kit as he could be (such as on the final track).

In the end, if you're a Levin fan, you should probably give this a try. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother. It's not overly entertaining. Thus, "Fans Only" and 2/5.
