From Fischman
Clearly a groundbreaking album, and full of wonderful experimentation and innovation, but sometimes very random, or outbursts placed just for shock value. Great album, but overrated overall as Miles produced better fusion both before and after.

Fantastic album! If there is such a thing as progressive jazz then this is it! The Electric Ladyland of the Miles Davis collection. The Dark Side of the Moon, the Sgt Pepper, the Selling England by the Pound, the Close to the Edge, the Moving Pictures. OK, I'll stop now, you catch my drift.

From Kurtco
This album is a jewel, a killing, an absolute masterpiece, an extremely important record for me, and one of the most essential, major records in the history of music, and, in particular, in jazz. "Bitches Brew", this Brouet of Sluts, is an album simply hypnotic, essential, grandiose, an album absolutely unbeatable, as well at Miles (except "Kind Of Blue" which is the best album of all time) that among the other jazzmen. An album that will sell by thousands of copies, and will be variously welcomed: purists will say that this is not true jazz, and young people will appreciate this mix of cultures making them discover a new way to listen to rock. On arrival, a perfect record, huge, monstrous, grrrreat.

From mdbaxter
I wish I was qualified to do an in-depth review about this album but, unfortunately, I don't know much about what makes up a Jazz album. It's a lot more methodical and electric guitar-centric than Davis' previous work that I've heard. It sounds like a more chaotic In a Silent Way. I particularly enjoyed Sanctuary.

Like nothing I've ever heard before, but I say that with a lot of Miles Davis' records. Pure genius and it must've been a trip to have worked on this album.

I love the progressive dark electric sound to this album but I feel the first 2 tracks are really dragged out too long and I struggle to sit through it all in one cool. Personally, I prefer In A Silent Way however, I'll admit that this is more important and groundbreaking album.

Peak electric Miles. Only one that comes close is Jack Johnson

From JulianR
One of the best jazz albums out there. Basically everyone here has that one album that got them into jazz, and it usually holds a dear position in their mind. I see for a lot of people that that album is Kind of Blue, and sometimes A Love Supreme. They're good albums, but when I listned to them both, trying to get into jazz, they didn't really click for me. But then I listened to bitches brew, and it all made sense. This album isn't just jazz, it's never noodling for the sake of noodling, it is art. Pure and simple.
