4 stars Historically an important fusion record of superminds behind fusion. They never played together in that format. All three players are totally geared up to tear their instruments showing immense talent, dexterity and experience. Do not expect advanced compositions, this is first and foremost a jamming tour de force.

All three players show a strong character but I acquired this record mainly because of Tony Williams ferocious playing that must pull many rock drummers of their chair - the intensity and use of bass drum are astonishing as well as the prowess of the trio to craft crazy rhytming patterns.

There is a light balance by also including two mellower pieces to reflect.
