4 stars After a bit dangerous experiments with synthy sounds and unsuccesful sound modernisation on his previous album, McLaughlin there returned to indo-jazz fusion of his early works. The result is really better,than on previous album.

I am not sure, how many listeners really know, what indo-jazz fusion is. I just want to say that in fact it is same jazz fusion with some elements taken from Indian music. But don't be afraid to hear some soundtrack from Bollywood movie there.

In "Floating Point" you will find tastefull and intelligent mix of jazz fusion and deeply melted in it some oriental elements. Music if not innovative sounds fresh.

Album was recorded in India and beside McLaughlin local musicians participated. The result isn't a masterpiece, but at least fresh sound and hope that McLaughlin will return to form again.
