5 stars My god... what an emotional piece in music... I don't exactly know why this is on Progarchives but I ain't complaining. This album is just a beautiful from end to end. Pat Metheny's songwriting and guitar playing is extraordinary, he plays really well live too (so that's a big positive). Nice little solos, and (again) emotional songwriting. This is my favourite album by Pat Metheny, and of course the incredible Lyle Mays also plays a huge part on this album with his incredible songwriting and keyboard playing. Keep in mind, this world jazz music is really hard to sound original in. Thankfully Mr. Pat Metheny and Mr. Lyle Mays did a brilliant job at keeping it original.

I can't say much else about this album, it really is a masterpiece... I know I say that a lot... but it's true. I wouldn't call something a masterpiece unless it really was one.

If you want a bit of a different album, but something just as good, go listen to Lyle Mays first album (as I like to call it 'Highland Aire') or go listen to 'As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls' by Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays. Both are masterpieces, and I mean that. These albums are a staple in both their careers, and are all gorgeous.
