Review by Matti
3 stars (The queer cover picture, um, among the stupidest I've seen.) The time I borrowed this compilation I had never heard of Brand X - only knew it for its drummer-Collins relation. I was slightly impressed. The music is very lively, surprising, flexible, modern instrumental jazz-rock par excellence. But it can get also quite tiring to ears, the style of keyboards especially. The sound is too much electric; more acoustic elements would be nicer for me. I have understood that the two first studio albums ('76, '77) are considered their best and for the new listeners they might be a better purchase. I missed album info and track lengths here. For connoisseurs this is probably of no use.

3 stars The thing I like about jazz rock that it's usually ideal for background listening. That's also the purpose when I play this album by Brand X. I'm not going to give an extensive review about this, it's not all too great, I'm not a jazz rock specialist but I don't dislike this kind of music. All songs are well enough to be heard and it's certainly an enjoyable spin of way over 1 hour. I give it 3.
