4.0 out of 5 stars Jazz for Motorhead fans, 8 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Dark Magus (Audio CD)
Lest you think the tagline above is a gag, I was alternating my headphone listening in my office this week between 'Dark Magus' and 'Best of Motorhead' and the perceived mood was much the same (I have what could best be described as 'eclectic' tastes).

Dark Magus is a loud, heavy and unsettling beast of a record (it recently made Q magazine's top 50 heaviest albums of all time list) and I rather like it that way. Miles isn't merely rocking, he's rocking bloody HARD. If you liked 'In a Silent Way' but were rather intimidated by the thought of Bitches Brew then this album will scare you to death, but if you're open to challenging music, then this will appeal. A lot of 'rock' fans have difficulty embracing jazz (and vice versa) but if you come from a rock background (and ironically, the more extreme your tastes the better in this instance) this may well be your way into the wonderful world of Jazz.

I think your review is excellent.
Pity this set is so expensive, but it is a 'limited' edition.
