5 stars This is an absolute masterpiece!

Honestly i met Mclaughin´s music because of the trio with Paco de Lucia and Al Di Meola, then i found an album of him with Santana, in both cases i noticed his exquisite and awesome guitar playing, then because i was really interested on his music, i found a lot of info about Mahavishnu Orchestra, and also i found that Birds of Fire was a very suggested album with excellent critics, so i got Birds of Fire then.

And actually this was my introduction to Mahavishnu´s albums, sometimes the introduction is the most difficult period , i mean because of your introduction to the artist you will determinate if you are interested in other albums or not, if you like it or not, this was the best choice, im not saying that maybe Birds of Fire is the best way to start with Mahavishnu Orchestra, but ít could be, and also if you love jazz fusion, this album is an obligation to you.

Im not so familiarized with jazz, i like it a bit, but this album is simply awesome, it shows us the great musicianship in the band, Mclaughlin is a god of guitar, he plays so fast and so well, along with the violin player who is Jerry Goodman here, they make and excellent couple of superb music, all the band is great ,the drummer is also superb and actually i dont think this albus have weak moments, every song is great and every song make you clear your mind and enjoy the music.
