5.0 out of 5 stars Weird & Wonderful, 24 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birds Of Fire (Audio CD)
I came to Birds Of Fire after discovering John McLaughlin on Miles Davis' Bitches Brew - the best record of all time i.m.o.. Initially I thought the music sounded a little dated, but I was soon entranced by the strange rhythms, beautiful melodies and (almost) ludicrous virtuosity of the musicians. After listening to it a couple of times I am hooked - it is a truly breathtaking ride that skips, without a hint of contrivance, between different musical styles (mainly rock and folk) and back again in the blink of an eye. One shouldn't really single out individual musicians in such a brilliant ensemble but McLaughlin has got to be a candidate for the most complete guitarist of all time and Cobham's drumming is so fast, light and inventive as to defy belief.

Buy this record, put any prog rock prejudices you might have on one side, and be astonished by the music.
