4 stars Weather Report is a legend in jazz-rock fusion, But... don't you wait for something of RTF or Machavishnu Orchestra kind of music. Far away!

The album begins of strange free-jazz composition. Slowly (and all the album is VERY slow) you will realise, that it's much more jazz, than usual fusion. And it's a strange world of cold keyboard sounds and sax solos, without structure, and only in rare moments with some drive. More amorphous sound, than any kind of musical structure, all that music is cool liquid. You can't feel comfortable in it, but you are often interested in that what happens after, next minute.

It's difficult for me to say, is this album good or bad. It's very different. In sense of free jazz category, I think i is almost perfect. In sense of some kind of jazz-rock avantgarde, it really strong. But if you're waiting for usual jazz-fusion of it's time, you will be totaly disappointed.

So - no recommendations, just try to decide, is it music for you, or just better avoid.
