3 stars Rocking Larry Coryell? Why not. This work is possibly heaviest and rockiest Larry recording. Plenty of guitar soloing, high energy, and - what is most important - not too many deviations from instrumental rock idea.

For sure, everyone will easily hear jazzy background of this music, but main sound is openly heavy rocking, even with shredding. Second guitarist Philip Catherine is a good partner for such direction.

Possibly most interesting and unusual album's moment is drummer Alphonse Mouzon, going funky! So, now you know everything about this release: mostly instrumental jazzy rock, when Larry Coryell goes heavy, Philip Catherine gives him good rocking support as second guitarist, and Alphonse Mouzon support guys with funky rhythms.

Not very characteristic combination, with own pros and cons. I think funky rhythm is great addition to album's music, and it saved album from being straightforward instrumental rock stereotype. But too deep excurse into heavy rock guitar music territory doesn't sounds as positive addition: too often fusion lover's ear will catch simplistic, not jazzy, but more rocky sound combination.

But in whole, very competent album, just possibly more recommended for instrumental rock with strong jazzy feeling lovers. Almost 3,5.

4 stars Coryell is back on his electric gibson and chewing on the bit to rock it out with his former bandmate/drummer Alphonse Mouzon. Although flawed in some ways this album has been hailed by many as one of the outstanding fusion recordings of the `70s. It`s a wonder that it sat in the vaults of Atlanti ... (read more)

3 stars This is no doubt the rockiest recording in the Coryell catalogue. It is also however a mixed blessing. This is an Eleventh House reunion of sorts minus Mike Mandel's keyboards, nor any sign of a trumpeteer. It does have a powerful twin-leadguitar approach that rocks harder than almost anythi ...
