4 stars After the split of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1973 (personal conflicts), two of the members - violinist Jerry Goodman and keyboardist Jan Hammer decided to make some music together. "Like children" was the only effect of their work. Album is very comparable with "Mahavishnu Orchestra" convention, so we have: hard sound of electric guitar ("Country and Eastern Music"), dialogues between the musicians ("Topeka"), pastoral mood ("Remember me"), and typical for Mahavishnu dramatic compositions ("Stepping tones", "Night"). Album contains also new versions of two tracks: quoted "Stepping Tones", "I wonder", which were played by the Mahavishnu, a short before the split (you can listen to these ones on "The lost trident sessions" album). There are no guests on the album - pair record all the parts of instruments. Excellent position for Mahavishnu Orchestra fans.
