I still don't know too much about Jazz. I'm just listening to what this website tells me to but I really enjoy this album. It's great to just relax and listen to. It's a lot slower than most albums making it capable of lulling you into a state of serenity.

Miles is joined by Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea & Wayne Shorter among others for this soothing, spacey, and mystical ride.

Great bridge to Bitches Brew. Electric Miles at his most soothing

It's incredibly majestic. Especially the second half, which is nearly ambient.

This is beautiful and I like the way it is sparse. Bitches Brew is great too, but can feel overwhelming. This album has a more accessible sound without sacrificing on the experimentation. Essential for anyone with an open mind to ambitious music.

My favourite ever album. Complex, and simple, assured but experimental. Done in one session! with the best jazz musicians assembled, they were all on form. You cannot "get" this music, it seems to change and surprise and delight at every playing. Mature, confident, engaging and rewarding. The more you play the better it gets. The pinnacle output of a genius! It takes you to levels that other artists can only dream about. The best album ever made.

The epitome of space music. From the moment it begins who feel like you've been lifted somewhere else.
