AllMusic Review by

Bruce Hampton, very late of the Hampton Grease Band, has learned to let it all stretch and flow, and, boy, does it flow. This sophomore set is a treat and a half, filled with jazzy grooves that get bluesy and then rocky, only to stand up and toss Bela Fleck out front for a banjo attack on "Too Many Guitars." It's relaxed, smart, fun music with big fat friendly shouter vocals from the Colonel.
