5 stars This IS Jazz Fusion. This I think is one of the quintessential Jazz Fusion albums. Collins' drums are simply amazing and Goodsall's guitar work is perfect everywhere. His guitar is not overpowering, is very atmospheric and is very heavy and rocking in Hate Zone. The keyboard is very jazzy and and very fast. I think the keyboards are the main part of the jazz sound, even though it is not the main part of the band's sound as a whole. The bass is also very rhythmic and even melodic in places. I love the songs where the band has a basic riff and main theme, and breaks off into a fast instrumental section to finally bring the song back to the main theme. The only two I can think of are Disco Suicide and Macrocasm, which are two of my favorites off this album. All of the songs are extremely good with and for the most part are fast, rhythmic pieces. MY favorites are Hate Zone, Disco Suicide, and Macrocasm.
