This album grooves, hard. The guitar solos aren't as overblown or obvious as on previous albums (a continuation of the trend started in Industrial Zen), but the midi guitar sounds taking a back seat to guest musicians in no way makes this a bad album. No, John might not rip as often as we'd like, but these are still some of the most fun McLaughlin tunes you'll hear. It's fun to hear them both in "studio" and "live" settings when comparing this to the official pirate CD as well.
