All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
The second outing from the Funk Ark shows a band full of confidence and willing to take more risks. In some ways, they've turned into the Santana of Afro-beat, mixing it up with rock and soul, the way that Carlos and his boys did with Latin music at the end of the '60s.
