From Fischman
This is a truly top shelf Shorter album that cemented his legacy as a composer as well as a player. His ability to both fuse and transcend multiple jazz subgenres here is remarkable.

This album is five stars. Wayne is a modern composer equal to any previous or current greats, and this work shows his talents unlike any other album of his, and there are many great albums by Wayne Shorter. The emotions that I feel when listening are of every identifiable type. The compositions are flawless, and timeless on this album. Jones drives the transitions as Jones was perfect at doing, and he keeps this album alive for me. Wayne's work, of which this album is the highlight, will always be timeless, and will always have a deep effect on my heart. I mentioned emotions. Shall I name them? No, that would be silly. But if you don't own this album, or haven't given it a proper listen at a proper time in your life, then you are missing an essential recording that undoubtedly has brought many musicians countless hours of joy. I'm going through this particular rating system, and finding a few albums that are low down on the ratings, and bringing these to the attention of the listener, so that others can understand how important this music is, and share my joy.

I hope I can run into Wayne some day. If I meet him I will try not to doat on his glorous past, as this may not be welcome. But I will definitely fall all over myself trying to relate to him just how he affected my well-being for so many years of listening. He is a living legend, and society fails to see this, but will some day recon with his greatness. Thank you Wayne Shorter.

Synthesising hard bop, modal jazz and free jazz, Shorter's brilliant compositions and tender ballads heralded in a new era of emotions in jazz music. Aided by the accomplished playing of Hubbard on horns, Hancock on piano, Carter on bass and Jones on drums, the sound on this album is melodically intense, albeit not particularly revolutionary.
