Well what can I say. Not my thing. This is jazz-fusion all right, but very much on the light side. Nothing adventurous at all. If the Mahavishnu Orchestra is Godzilla, then this is Bambi. Nothing wrong with that if that is what you're looking for but a little tame for my tastes. I am not the biggest of Pat Metheny fans but I have heard albums that I like a lot better than this one. If you are into smooth jazz then this may be the thing for you. I can hear that the musicians are talented and all but it's just that I'm not that much into the style. Described as jazz meets Americana but i'm not feeling it. Only the last track saves this from being a one star album for me.
