4 stars This album provided a great spectacular introduction to the Dixie Dregs. It set the tone for the albums to come. The musicianship is amazing, as are the Steve Morse compositions. I've always heard comparisons to The Mahavishnu Orchestra, and I suppose there is a similarity, but nobody had done this type of country jazz rock fusion before.

The music on this album is as goos as any of the subsequent Dregs albums. And it's barely noticable that keyboardist T Lavitz is not yet in the band, as Steve Davidowski fills that position with more than enough virtuosity.

there are plenty of great songs here, but "Cruise Control" has always been my favorite, and has been a crowd pleaser at live shows since the beginning of the band.

Evolver | 4/5 |
