AllMusic Review by

Drummer Alphonse Mouzon has always wavered back and forth between hard-driving jazz/rock fusion and disco/funk. This recording certainly falls into latter category with very little here for fans of his blazing chops. It's hard not to imagine strobe lights and a glitter ball when listening to tunes such as "Snake Walk" or "You Are My Dream." Most of the arrangements here are repetitive and were obviously meant to be used as dance music. Fusion fans are encouraged to steer clear of this one, as it amounts to nothing more than a '70s disco session -- and a boring one at that.
