3 stars This album is one last Hancock connection with hip-hop/ techno era. Don't expect to find something too much different from his similar works stylistically. But if you're not so jazz purist, you can find some interesting moments there on that album.

First of all, this work is a rare combination of big team of jazz fusion great musicians from 70-s with a big team of techno/hip hop modern musicians. How often you can find Hancock old collaborators Bennie Maupin, Wah Wah Watson,Bill Summers or Santana/RTF percussion star Airto Moreira on hip-hop albums?

And the result is as it should be from that combination: the music is still hip hop/techno ( in moments with acid jazz sound), but with plenty of live jazz instruments and played at the highest technical level.

I don't think this album will be accepted by wide range of jazz or prog lovers, but Hancock fans and everyone searching some interesting and experimental moments in jazz movement, will find some pieces for listening there.
