4 stars The only album i own from this musician, and a great one i might say. One of the ones i really enjoy of jazz-fusion. First, notice 2 big names on Enigmatic ocean, Allan Holdsworth (no introduction), Daryl Stuermer (known from Genesis, Tony Banks solo). Talking about the music, some very fine moments are Enigmatic moments part II and Struggle of the sea turle all parts. Wonderfully crafted album with a lot of keys, violins and with amazing drums. One of the best jazz albums from the '70. I will not give the highest rate because sometimes i had the impression that the musical lines is repeting, but not in so big cantity to make a Collectors/fans only album. So my rate is 3.5 rounded to 4. Recommended
