4 stars The first impression I get when listening to this Bill Connors album is that he put together quite a talented trio. There's Bill himself, who's sound here is very reminiscent of Allan Holdsworth, bass player Tom Kennedy that many here know from Planet X, and drummer Kim Plainfield, now a Berklee School of Music professor.

The trio plays exceptional high energy fusion, mostly improvised around Connors' loose compositions. And it's the looseness, or lack of many composed sections that is this albums only real drawback. Because there is so much improvisation, and so little melodic sections, the album tends to have a sameness from start to finish. But at only 35 minutes, it's not much of a drawback, as the listener doesn't tire of the sounds, as the performances are so good.
