5 stars This Pat Metheny Group album is in my opinion a masterpiece, and heartly recommendable to the progarchives readers. There are two Pat Metheny solos guitar , i mean in the second track "Are you going with me" with the synth-guitar, and in the sixth "James" with the canonical semi-acoustic Gibson, absolutely magnificent; "Offramp" is a tune marking the vigourously emergence of his "Colemanian" harmolodic side, and in diametrical opposition as concerning the atmosphere, the "nuance", the third track entitled "Au lait", oh! how strange it seems to me its mixture! I feel of course the brazilian flavours (the voice and the percussion of Nana Vasconcelos are a true suadade messanger), but also something else that recallss me to a 1950's French noir-movie. The opening "Barcarole", "Eighteen", the final "The Bat, part 2" are worthy colours of the picture. Five stars.
