4 stars I can't say that I miss Phil Collins on this album. I especially don't miss his vocals. The replacements for Collins and keyboardist Robin Lumley, Chuck Burgi and Peter Robinson do an excellent job filling in. But the standouts on this album of great fusion, as usual, are guitarist John Goodsall and the ever spectacular Percy Jones on bass.

The music here is the tight, fast, complex fusion that we have come to expect from Brand X. The songs here are all extremely well played. In fact, when I first heard this album, the very first time I heard this band, I was so blown away by Jones' bass playing that I almost put down my bass for good, since there was no way I could ever even approach this level of amazingness.
