SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
4 stars On Chad Wackerman's second album, he has kept essentially the same band as he had on the first, Jimmy Johnson on bass and Jim Cox on keyboards. Allan Holdsworth is still here, but only on abou half of the tracks. On the rest he is replaced by the competant Carl Verheyen. Also added is Walt Fowler on horns.

Wackerman here is developing his own style. Where his first album sounded mostly like a Holdsworth album, this time the tracks are more rhythmically centered, with Wackerman's exceptional drums more in the forefront. The songs are more melodic, and easier to follow, and the addition of Fowler's horns add some depth.

For Zappa fans, the track All Sevens has a rhythm and solo section that sounds very much like The Purple Lagoon. It also adds to that feeling when Fowler plays his solo on a harmonized horn (as Randy Brecker did on "Zappa In New York").
