a great album. I have yet to hear such an advanced album in terms of chops and rhythm which moves me so much. On top of the terrifying musical mastery on display, it's just great music. Jimmy's bass solo on 54 Duncan Terrace is astounding. I've never heard a bass solo like it. I also think it's the best thing Vinnie's ever recorded. Good call, Roger!
James Taylor's Hourglass is also a favourite of mine. Carlos was such a beautiful drummer. That huge, boomy tom fill in Gaia - man!
