4 stars Wonderful album, slightly broken-up with certain fragments, which are unfortunately typical for american fusion music of those years. This destructive force is funky, some kind of black-rooted, dance music, completely misfit with progressive rock. A lot of brilliant music ideas, performed in 1970-ths by famous fusion-masters, e.g Jan Hammer, Jeff Beck, Colosseum II were infected by this dangerous virus of funky-style. In spite of that "Like Children" offers ca. 30 minutes of extraordinarily inspiring music (better forget the rest 10 minutes: "Earth" "Giving in gently" and main part of "Fool moon Boogie"). Opening: "Country and Eastern Music" and a final "I wonder" are sophisticated and beautiful examples of heavy-jazz-rock, "No Fear" and "Night" are moody and full of electronic sounds. All tracks are perfomed by both authors only, playing on various instruments. Both of them are virtuoso players - Jan Hammer is as good drummer as a keyboard player and Jerry Goodman master of violin as well as electric guitar. Unfortunately both of them believe that they are a good singer - such a mistake! Guitar solo in "I Wonder" clearly suggests who was a great fan of Robin Trower (Procol Harum). Four stars.
