4 stars War dance released in same year with previous album Electric savage 1977 is another worthy album in jazz rock realm with progressive elements added in the mix. This is their final album untill they disbanded in 1978. Well, this offer is very much in same vein with Electric savage. Everybody knew the hudge potential had Moore and Airey onto Colosseum II sound and overall compositions, but really I didn,t knew I will be so impressed by Jon Hiseman on drums and John Mole on bass, they are fantastic musicians aswell like their band friends, Hiseman has some fabulous chops , specially all 4 musicians shine on fast instrumental passages like on The inquisition or title track, only one track Castle is with vocals coming from Moore voice, a so so afair not bad not something special either. So, definetly 4 stars for this one, for me Colosseum II is one of the most under rated bands from their fild. Very solid, well played, tight compositions.
