Metheny's amazes me once again

His ability and willingness to learn and explore new horizons is nothing short of amazing.
One of the most eclectic and open minded artists of all times.

Only took about 2 min to make the purchase

I was listening to the review of the album on NPR and after hearing clips of a couple songs, I was instantly combing iTunes looking for this. There is so much to unpack cerebrally while still being able to enjoy the rhythms and textures. I've only had one pass through the album but know that this is going to be my goto album for awhile. Nice job!

50% unlistenable

I'm a huge Metheny fan, own most of his albums and go see him in concert whenever he come to Atlanta. Most recently the Unity Band and his Orchestion tour before that.

That said, I'm disappointed with this album. I found a little over half the tracks to be too experimental to be worth multiple listenings. The two longer "album only" tracks are accessible, if also a bit on the challenging side, even more so than his early fusion stuff.

For Metheny fans who need to own his discography, buy it for the two long tracks ("Phanuel" and "Sariel"). Just don't expect to be able to add this album in with your Unity Band or PMG playlists. It will stick out and be as unwelcome as Bill Gates at MacWorld.

Wish it weren't so but this is not close to his best work.

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group are difficult to describe (folk-jazz? mood music?) but manage to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz and making Metheny famous enough that he could perform whatever type of music he wanted without losing his audience.
