4 stars Easily the best Hancock album. I am not a jazz fan but it's so good that I like it a lot and treat it more like progressive rock music. I know it's not rock but the vibe is somehow rockish. Traditional jazz sounds very old to me and even being 40+ I still feel too young for it. This one on the other hand even after 46 years sounds fresh and exciting. Look at the album cover. The music is like that cover. First of all it's crazy, it's colourful, it's erotic like those dancers. Some strange noises here and there that's the electronic part of it. Mad moon calling, dance in the rain like a madman (just kidding, simply have fun). Listen with care.
