5 stars I admit I am not familiar with Pat Metheny's albums apart from Offramp so I cannot really assess how well this compilation represents his back catalogue. What I can say is the music here is just superb. The opening track"Sueno Con Mexico" is a gorgeous acoustic number with Metheny overdubbing some electric base. "Heartland" reminds me of Aaron Copland during his Rodeo phase. I love the punchy lead lines on this track - it is probably my favourite track on the whole album."James" -apparently an ode to Jame Taylor is also quite exhilarating with some absolutely sublime soloing towards the end.There are really no weak tracks at all and despite containing only seven tracks this album is an immensely rewarding listening experience.If you like melodic proggy jazz this album is a definite must own

5 stars
