4 stars On Imposing Elements multi-instrumentalist Dean Watson brings back fusion as though it had never left us! Updating the stylistic approach of 1970s fusioneers with fresh compositions, modern equipment, and a dazzling range of different moods from the intense to the whimsical (there's a "meowing cat" effect at parts on 16 Feet Below which is quite fun), it's like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Caravan and mid-1970s King Crimson got together to jam.

Apparently, Dean gets the inspiration for his albums from the artwork of his collaborator Ron Eady, and here Watson certainly captures the unnerving atmosphere of the industrial landscape Eady has captured on the cover but also the sunniness of that charming blue sky up the top there. Fusion fans take note: one of the best practitioners of the form we have today is selling his work on Bandcamp for an absolute steal.
