This must rank as one of Corea's truly outstanding creations. I have been listening to this album for 20 years and never tire of it. Why ? Because whilst this album is a lot more accessible than some of Chicks (more abstract) current offerings, there lies beneath a complexity that warrants repeated listening - and rewards those who open their minds and ears to some of the most beautiful multi-layered keyboard/synth renderings you could wish for. Many composers would be happy with the melody alone - but corea compliments them with subtle counter-melodies equally endearing. The album finishes with the outstanding 'Spanish Fantasy'. Twenty minutes of incredible creativity. The verve version is definately worth getting over the Polydor CD release as it has all of the tracks from the original double album ( 'the sky' was left out due to lack of space). As George Michael said, listen without predjudice. Enjoy.

Probably the best CC album, with Light as a Feather. Very, very imaginative, incredibly varied - some compositions sound like Bartok dances or other 20th classical music; Corea experiments with some interesting electronic keyboard sounds, but there's lots of acoustic piano also.

Great supporting musicians. Strings, vocals, lots of brass. Oh it's just great - go any buy it.

Chick in supreme form, beautiful melodies accurately played by a stella cast. I could have done with a bit more of the Alembic from Stanley, but there again his upright playing and tone is awesome. Wonderful stuff.
