Notes: A bonus track was included on the Japanese release. This is bass-heavy, instrumental prog/fusion, a reminder that Bruford is not only interested in acoustic jazz, even if he concentrates on that with his Earthworks band. (7) is very reminiscent of Bruford's eponymous band and Malone quotes the bass riff from "Heart of the Sunrise". (HP, 22 Jan 03)
