In contrast to the previous reviewer, I believe this is the inspired work of a creative genius of exceptional talents. I've listened to this album many times over the past week, and find it totally addictive. Not only is Joan herself an incredible musician, but she seems to have assembled a team of fellow players around her who exhibit equal gifts, and the interplay between them is magical. Sadly, the material here may not be as commercial as some tatstes would prefer, but anyone who enjoys innovation and passion in music, alongside high production values, will love this album. Far from being a disappointment, this album is the perfect culmination of her career to date. GO JOAN!
