5 stars This is probably the best Weather Report album. After changing style from avant-guarde jazz oriented fusion to more slick and melodical, actually more rocking kind of fusion on Tale Spinnin, two years ago, Black Market is where the full benefits of this turnove can be enjoyed, and probably by much greater spectre of prog music lovers. It is still very much jazz-rock, with fantastic jazzy solos by all the mebers of the band. But in the same time, the numbers are very melodical, and even symfo-rocky, although often a little weird, but always really groovy. I very much value this weirdness, which adds a lot of listening pleasure. The album sounds as a whole musical creation, it can be listened in one breath. And the good thing is: the longer you listen to it, the more yoy like it. Even now, 40 years later, it sounds fresh and very much up-to-date. If you have listened to Kilimanjaro Secret Brew by Roine Stolt and Jonas Reingold, you would know were they came from :-)
