4 stars Acoustic/electric album by Jean-Luc Ponty sounds surprisingly pleasant. Ponty plays not only electric violin, but electric piano and synths as well. Compositions are melodic, played with good technique and what is even more important - tastefully.

Don't expect any experiments there. But for year 1979 this album sounds modern and elegant at the same time, without being too much rounded and polished. The music is very accessible, but album still isn't one of this new-age or electro-pop clones from 80-s. Outstanding bass line - it's good enough reason to listen this albums because of this bass only, nice drumming - it is one from the albums which can attract non- prepared listener to jazz-rock pleasures.
