Brilliant all the way through. The second half isn't as incredibly mindblowing as the first two songs but they're still amazing!

Interesting stuff. I think the jazz-funk vibe isn't really my thing, as I haven;t found much of it that I like, but I would still recommend this to people. It's one of the better jazz-funk albums I've heard. I just prefer other fusion styles more

I saw an infographic that described this album as astronaut porn music. Can confirm: definitely makes me want to film a space porno.

The jazz/funk fusion on this record is absolutely brilliant. A classic just for Chameleon alone. Sly is also fantasic and not a bad moment throughout. My favorite Hancock album.

One of the greatest jazz albums of the seventies. Head hunters, is Herbie Hancock's, bitch's brew. A funky masterpiece. More cohesive than Mahavishnu orchestra and Weather report, although those are two great bands, it's just this holds together better as a whole. Herbie Hancock, one of the great keyboard players ever.

From Nobodyisemo 06/07/2016 02:59
Honestly, it kind of falls flat for me. The rhythms throughout the songs seem rigid, unlike the admittedly few Davis fusion albums I've heard. There isn't enough room for variance, it wallows, mellows and never explodes or climaxes, besides a little bit on Chameleon. Watermelon Man is on the edge of fun, a silly track that isn't cohesive enough to shine. I can see the album's importance, and it's likeable, but it's boring. I'll listen some more and try to let the funky magic take over for the sake of its legacy.
