4 stars Among the best Holdsworth album, if not the best, with some of the top musicians of that time on it, like this i describe at the first impression the album Metal fatigue. A jazz album with a rock touch, but very efficient and well played. Because is one of my fav albums of jazz i consider to be a 4 star album, maybe not so great like '70 jazz music but for sure a good one of the '80. Talking about the music, the "Devil take the Hindmost" truly a classic that defies time. "Home" is one of the few Holdsworth recordings of Allan's acoustic abilities. Beautiful. "The Un-Merry-Go-Round" is a three part opus, with a drum solo, beautiful chordal work and inspirational soloing, great track and complex enough to catch the auditorium of jazz. One of my fav jazz albums, still good after all thy years, but i don't consider a masterpiece,only a 4 star album, because the jazz of the '70 is unmatch.
