Review by The Owl
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Had a rough time with this one, between that horrid 80's glossy digital production, the obnoxious Simmons electronic drums, mostly weak compositions and trying to have it both ways (be radio-friendly and be adventurous) but not succeeding on either count.

A couple things I will say though to it's credit:

1) Johnny Mac dumped that annoying Synclavier Guitar.

2) There actually were a couple songs that were significantly improved and became polished gems later on in the John McLaughlin Trio ("Florianapolis", Reincarnation"). "20th Century Limited" is a good track too. If only the whole album was this good.

3 stars "Adventures In Radioland" would test you whether or not you can suit in the music this album offers. Even if this is not the kind of music you might expect how far you can go to tolerate this offering, accept it as is and try to understand how John McLaughlin and Friends express their feelings, emotions and thoughts into music. Or, you might need a very special mood to comprehend this album. Oh well . this is almost all a musical exploration where some tracks sound like jamming session featuring soloists.

This album represents the band's musical adventures into different kind of music compared to their early years in the seventies. The line-up is completely different, leaving only John McLaughlin in the center. This is something similar with King Crimson where only Robert Fripp (guitar) serves as pinnacle of the band's progression. John McLaughlin brought Bill Evans (keys/sax) in the band plus other high caliber musicians like Mitchel Forman, Jonas Hellborg and Abraham Wechter (acoustic guitar). The music is very similar with Weather Report or Bill Bruford's Earthwork or Brand X. One song "Jozy" is dedicated to Joe Zawinul of Weather Report. That explains why the music is somewhat similar with Weather Report. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

2 stars McLaughlin tried to use once again Mahavishnu Orchestra fame for marginal record (recorded and released originally in Italy). Not very successful action, though.

Even if musicianship there is of high level (technically), it hardly goes far than just musicianship itself. Plenty of electronic keyboards, polished sound, flirting with pop- electronics, even hip-hop rhythms, light sound, some old jazz-tricks - explosive combination, not very unusual for 80-s though.

As a result, you have something in between of easy jazzy listening, some bombastic, but out of place keyboards, guitar attacks, borrowed from archives, and common very cheesy feeling. Bil Evans, Jonas Hellborg participation and few funky grooves doesn't help. Release for collectors mainly.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
2 stars This was the second album by the 1980's "Mahavishnu" (notice no orchestra in the name) band. There are some fine musicians in the group, but I still get the feeling that the name was used as a cynical was to just sell records. McLaughlin's performance is good, as are the performances of some of the sidemen, especially Bill Evans and Mitchel Forman. Where the album lacks is in composition. Where the classic seventies Mahavishnu Orchestra albums excelled was in the bold and exciting, and extremely powerful jazz rock fusion. None of those adjectives would I attach to this album, which appears to be an effort to cash in on Pat Metheny's success with light, airy guitar fusion. There is even a preponderance of that breathy synth sound that Metheny was overusing in the 80's.

At least it's better than Inner Worlds

2.5 stars.

3 stars This album, definetly not their best. It took their musicianship out of the picture and put in the digital age. Sythns, some over production.

2 stars If you tune into this one expecting more blistering, lightspeed, 1000 MPH, fret melting guitar work from the resident guitar guru then you're in for a major let down. This is John McLaughlin's second attempt in the 1980's to resurrect the Mahavishnu name and despite the array of electronic equipment ... (read more)
