This is the kind of weirdness I love. It's a great statement by polished, highly skilled musicians, including Cream's Jack Bruce on bass and vocals. McLaughlin and Young, alumni of the first Tony Williams Lifetime recording, Emergency!, complete this influential fusion lineup. This is a great example of fine musicians stepping out and getting strange with an aggressive rock sensibility. I feel liberated listening to this album.
