Shhhhhhh.....Close your eyes and let Miles take you high above the clouds. The best way to describe "In A Silent Way" is "beautiful".....This is an adult lullaby. Miles Davis once again proves that his musical imagination can go well beyond others around him. This really is inspiring , relaxing , chillout jazz at its best. Unlike many other records it gets better and better the more you listen.

Absolutely fabulous pieces of music. Nearly forty and I can't believe I've been listening to it for 30+ years! This, and Hot Rats by Frank Zappa, helped me thro some crap summers in Cumbria playing board games with an elder brother. Like others I have recently purchased yet another copy after gifting it to friends. Still have my taped version on a soundhog cassette tho! Don't worry if your CD collection isn't as big as 'Owen's' below, and I'm not dull, a muso or pretentious - tho he may be.

DO treat yourself to this fine CD of musicianship. Listen to the samples and curse yourself for not already owning it. Enjoy! Porl.

I was a young child when the original album was released, and the whole jazz revolution passed me by. This extended album has kindled a new love of music. "So What" and "Love for Sale" just blow you away! My only advice is to listen to this sublime music on the best quality audio equipment you have so as to get all the depth and subtlety it offers.

THIS FOR ME I FIND MORE REWARDING THAN BITCHES BREW
IT HAS A MORE SPACEY AMBIENT FEEL TO IT EVEN THOUGH IT FEATURES ONLY 2 TRACKS
JOHN MCLAUGHLINS GUITAR WORK STANDS OUT I ALSO PREFER THE STRIPPED DOWN INSTRUMENTATION WHERE AS BITCHES BREW HAS A FAR MORE DENSE SOUND. WORTH PURCHASING.

Miles gets together with guitar maestro McLaughlin. This is legendary stuff, although IMO you need to set aside some time to listen to the whole piece; a sweepingly widescreen, organic, operatic, epic journey. Such sweet sadness.

I listened to many of Miles' earlier albums and was apprehensive to try some of his later, given its mixed reputation, but the second track is pure gold, 20 minuets of perfection.

Miles was mapping out his future direction with this jazz/rock/fusion style. The artist lineup is awesome. A must have album for anyone who likes Miles.

The languorousness of this album induces an Orphic, floating, free-associating state best suited for listening to in the bath, with the lights out.

An unexpected and diverse cd with a combination of classic Miles Davis sounds combined with other artists. Different and enjoyable.

I had heard this CD many years ago and thought it would make a good gift to friend. She likes it so it can`t be at all bad.
