5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting inspiration, 1 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Individual Choice (Audio CD)
This has always been one of my favourite JLP albums and was a revelation at the time it came out due to its balance of hi tech programming and lyricism. The opening 'Incantations' is both playful and beautiful whilst displaying some complex writing on the synth track and sets the tone for the album. Far from the Beaten Path is for me the most uplifting track on the album and George Duke's solo on the following 'In Spiritual Love' is also a rare work of joy. The bliss out 'Eulogy' is pure JLP tripping the light fantastic and is as cosmic as it gets. 'Nostalgia' is a triumph featuring some of Allan Holdsworth's finest playing (however check out Point of No Return on 'the Atacama Experience' to see how he has matured and now has an even more exquisite and nuanced style.) The title track is again a swirl of synths with JLP riffing away merrily on top and the last track is slightly disappointing in the context of the album as a whole but still has some great playing by Holdsworth. Overall one of the best albums I know - buy it - enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Determination + Holdsworth, 25 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Individual Choice (Audio CD)
This excellent Ponty CD has the added advantage of featuring the illustrious Mr Allan Holdsworth on tracks 5 (Nostlagia) and 7 (In Spite Of All - presumably Malgré tout....). It is one of Jean-Luc Ponty's best CDs for many reasons - nice synthesizer, well-recorded and the usual, excellent Ponty and Holdsworth instrumental qualities.

A must for any Ponty/Holdsworth enthusiast and anyone else for that matter.
