What makes this album kick? All the tracks are make-it-up-as-you-go tunes. Miles really brought it in session musicians with good names. He even named one of the tracks after the guitarist. The death of Jimi Hendrix later inspired Miles to go more heavy in his music. My mom don't like Miles when he's doing that, but what does she know? Miles left many good recordings behind him, and you must buy this one if you like electro-jazz.

I have never listened to ANYTHING quite like this double album. I find it one of the harderst albums of all- time. It is amazing. My favorite track is the title track. It is so unpredictable and diverse. A milestone not only in jazz, but in all of music.

No words can even begin to describe this masterpiece. So why write a review, right? All I can say is that Bitches Brew is the answer to the question: If you were on a desert island and could only have one CD, what would it be? This is it. There is no other.

I'm so sorry to say this, but ''Bitches Brew''is not as good as everyone makes it out to be. There is a sense of unevenness throughout the entire double album set. And another problem is that many of the songs last far too long. Take for example the title track. The song lasts nearly a half hour. On top of that, there really isn't any variation the the song, or the album, for that matter. Many of the tracks sound the same. i respect what Davis did in coming out with something different: that's waht makes artists grow. I just didn't enjoy this particular album as much as I did a Filles de Killomanjaro, E.S.P., Sketches of Spain, or Jack Johnson.

B. Brew broke the rules of classic jazz and is the first true fusion jazz album. A must have in any jazz collection. B. Brew is a definite tough listen at first, but after a few listens with the headphones, one will see the true genius of this work. Start with disc 2. Spanish Key and Miles Runs the Voodoo Down are masterpieces. The album has an all-star set of musicians (Shorter, Corea, Maupin, Zawinul, McLaughlin) blending an incredible sound throughout this entire album. Disc 1 is a little more exploratory, but just as good as disc 2. As quoted in the liner: ''Beautiful yet frightening.'' Get this album ASAP.

Brew is...heck, it's beyond words. Brew, Kind of Blue, Do Bop, and Sketches of Spain continue finding their way into my stereo rack. Brew was a life altering experience for me. Heck I can still remember the first time I heard it at home three years ago, and even now I can still go back to this disc and find something I have never heard before. The beauty of this music is that...how can I put it...the silence is defening, and the quiet spaces are so full of music...allright, It may sound like I'm tripping on something, but trust me. If you truely listen to this album, and I mean LISTEN, you will become lost is it's sonic soundscape. Do be warned, if the only thing you've heard from miles is his 40-50 Jazz period, this will be a culture shock, and you may want to work your way up to this disc (starting with Filles de Killimanjaro, and In a Silent Way) This is the very defination of great music, what more can I say.

Simply put,this is not only the greatest fusion album of all time,but one of the greatest albums period.

This whole album is just like this: each artists on it is a season collding with very in depth visions. Some paint the image of winter that stings like a bee, the image of the fall that sprinkles the essence of changes, the image of spring that buds the scent of nature's infant life, and the image of summer that becomes the fire of its feast for all these seasons! No album I have heard has had seasons, visions, planets, and worlds all colliding together at once like this. The first step into the first track is like the first bud of coming to age...where it's the time to reflect on the boundaries of the force of nature. As the other tracks come along, age seems to enclose into the abyss of darkness, where age seems to no longer exists. That's how powerful this album is. It completely sucks you into a drowned world with enough light to take you closer into the sun of great recreation and appreciation for this jazz.
