All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
If 1980's As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls was defined by Pat Metheny's charisma, its less accessible but certainly rewarding successor, Offramp, finds him leaning more toward the abstract.

Throughout the CD, Metheny enjoys a powerful rapport with keyboardist Lyle Mays, who also avoids exploiting his technique and opts for meaningful storytelling.

    FIRST JAZZ "ALBUM"

    This was the first jazz "album" that I ever bought. I was in high school at the time. I recently repurchased it on disc. Now, my 22 month old son and I frequently listen to it. It brings back great memories. "Are You Going With Me" is his favorite track. Who knows, maybe he and his son will be listening to it some day. It's that enduring!! GREAT work by Pat M.
