3 stars Bill finally achieves his pre-azimuth after playing in everything from Yes KC Genesis Pavlov`s Dog and his previous assorted solo works which included the fickle Allan Holdsworth. this is an explosion of heavy jazz. Rythmn abounds on this one and it only gets better on subsequuent Earthworks albums. prepare yourself for some dangerous smashing percusion accompanied by complicatited accopaniment. Guitar heads should stay away from this one for the simple reason is that there are no guitars here. i think that Bill just had enough guitar overload afetr KC.

Bruford had tought himself a number of chords on the piano when embarking on his first solo album album and it is evident that he has taught himself a few more here.

The album goes through so many motions from the thuderous introductory track Thud to the romantic My Heart Declares a Holiay.

Perhaps more appealing to jazz-rock fans, fans of Bruford`s drumming will swim in this.
