A great album by a brilliant musician. This album demonstrates his progressive, innovative style. He brings jazz to ever more progressive frontiers.

This really is an amazing album, if there is any justice in the world this would be a million seller. Mr.Glasper has been compared quite rightly to Herbie Hancock but only in music style, I think his piano style in some instances sounds like Oscar Peterson quite delicate and intricate. By the time you reach the middle of the album the 'hip hop' rhythm becomes more pronounced, there is some strange segways, a band member talking on the phone and a clip from a live show also I think something lifted from a film which all makes for interesting listening. The end of track five has some amazing percussion the musicianship on this album is of a very high standard well worth buying.

I'm not really a jazz buff but this was not too freaky! The tracks are varied not 'samey' and you can hear some of the hip hop influences he says he has.

A lot of talk about this album because of Glasper's work for Mos Def, who is very generous in his contribution to the liner notes of this album. But in fact this album was downright disappointing in terms of incorporating anything meaningful from hip hop into the increasingly stagnant jazz medium. There is a small bit in the J Dilla tribute, which is the best part of the album and all too short. Then it falls back into normal mode, which is competent but hmmm... nothing that will rock your world or make you convinced that you laid down your money for an album which took you too a place you hadn't been before.

The best I can say about this album is that it hints that Glasper has more to offer. But he needs to actually display some moxie and GO THERE instead of faffing about with the head-it-all-before stuff.
