Format: Audio CD
This 1984 album represented another step in Miles Davis' transition away from the blues and fusion influences of predecessor albums Star People and Decoy and (arguably) into more mainstream interpretations of commercial pop music (albeit with quite a heavy funk, and jazz-funk, influence). Primarily for these reasons, You're Under Arrest did not find favour with established jazz critics, but for me, (perhaps because I was, at the time, dabbling in things quite close to the style of You're Under Arrest) I would go out on a limb and say that the album had much going for it. Of course, you have to be someone not immediately turned off by Robert Irving III's synthesisers and Darryl 'The Munch' Jones' slap bass, as these form much of the backbone and feel of You're Under Arrest.

In addition, though, we have other impressive musical turns here. John McLaughlin's guitar playing is suitably moody and inflected, not to mention pyrotechnic, on one of the album's major works, the Davis, Irving composition, Katia, which also features Miles' staccato playing in a post-Bitches Brew vein. Similarly, the rather more restrained and conventionally tuneful Ms. Morrisine features Davis' playing at its most soothing and melodic, whilst McLaughlin concludes the number with another impressive solo. Of course, if it's soothing Davis playing you're after then the album's two most notorious covers - the Michael Jackson song Human Nature and Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time could be regarded as soothing blandness(?) personified, but I still regard Davis' version of the Lauper song as the finest rendition I've heard (and particularly impressive it was to catch Miles playing it live in the early 1980s, even if he did have his back pretty much exclusively turned towards the audience!).

Good effort by Miles but in all honesty this must be his weakest album. Human Nature & Time After Time are easy on the ear but the rest is just not up to Miles high standards. Miles Davis was not a well man when this record was made and it shows. He had lost his chops...... But because of the class of the man he gets away with it. Worth the money and nice to listen to on a Sunday morning but won't blow you away.....

Although an admirer of Miles Davis, especially during the period 1955 - 1965 I found his music increasingly less to my taste "after Bitches Brew" so why on Earth would I have bought this album from 1984? In two words "Human Nature". I had a copy of this track on the compilation album "Mellow Miles" and decided to try out the whole album. To be honest the only other track that I really like is "Time After Time". These two tracks are melodic ballads and the treatment with Miles' amplified trumpet, and background of "electronica" works. The other tracks are highly percussive, lots of guitar / synthesiser as well as trumpet. Not sure that I'd call them tuneful, but they are quite mesmeric. I suppose the album may have been for dancing, in which case it may well have been a success. Probably for a younger audience.

Glitzy and somewhat strident mid 80 s album ..but it grows on you .
Time after Time stands out of course . JGC
