When I first heard this album I really disliked it. I was a big fan of Bitches Brew, On The Corner and Agharta, so I was looking forward to this album. It is so different from Miles's other fusion releases. A few years after my initial revulsion, I went back to this album and fell in love with it. "He Loved Him Madly", the first of the two side long pieces, is a stunner, almost ambient jazz. Another standout track is "Rated X" with its funky rhythms buried under loud dissonant organ chords played by Miles. This album requires time but it reaps rewards.
