All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Right from the start, a vastly different Weather Report emerges here, one that reflects co-leader Joe Zawinul's developing obsession with the groove. It is the groove that rules this mesmerizing album, leading off with the irresistible 3/4 marathon deceptively tagged as the "Boogie Woogie Waltz" and proceeding through a variety of Latin-grounded hip-shakers. It is a record of discovery for Zawinul, who augments his Rhodes electric piano with a funky wah-wah pedal, unveils the ARP synthesizer as a melodic instrument and sound-effects device, and often coasts along on one chord.

The once fiery Wayne Shorter has been tamed, for he now contributes mostly sustained ethereal tunes on soprano sax, his tone sometimes doubled for a pleasing octave effect. The wane of freewheeling ensemble interplay is more than offset by the big increase in rhythmic push; bassist Miroslav Vitous, drummer Eric Gravatt, and percussionist Dom Um Romao are now cogs in one of jazz's great swinging machines.

    Truly a deep Album

    This album is truly phenomenal and underrated. After two misses, Weather Report really made a gem, even without Acuna, Erskine, and Jaco Pastorius!! It starts out with ''Boogie Woogie Waltz'' which is a song of unlimited background and depth. The rest of the songs are all very interesting, and the album is very ''70's Sounding''. On a negative side, the production of the album is sloppy. Cuts and pastes are hurried, the album was recorded and sounds quite plastic, and artificial. The musical quality far surpasses any technilogical mishaps. In addition, this album is very different. I hated it the first time I listened to it, and now I can't get it out of my CD player. Great great album. The infectious Gb Pentatonic melody near the 9 minute mark of the first track is one of the most creative melodies of Zawinul. I reccomend this album highly.
