Mahavishnu Orchestra is just the best music ever made.

You could call this Mahavishnu Orchestra III or you can just listen to it and understand that Mahavishnu John McLaughlin is simply the greatest guitar player who has ever lived and one of contemporary jazz's most un-heralded composers. ALL of the Mahavishnu Orchestra albums are superb, the greatest music ever made in my (and many others) opinion. Its impossible to compare these albums to other artists albums they can only be compared to other Mahavishnu discs. WWhile this is probably the most overlooked disc it truly has some of McLaughlins most exciting compositions and playing. If you dismissed this album because it does not have Ponty or Goodman or Hammer or Cobham you really missed out on a great great Mahavishnu release. 5 stars only because I cannot give infinity. The greatest music ever made.\m/ Long Live Mahavishnu Orchestra \m/

Mahavishnu Orch.

Last of the Mahavishnu Orchestra albums and while most of the album is tepid, there are enough cuts to make it worth buying. All in the Family is the best of the lot. In My Life is subtle, yet addictive. Gita conjures up frolicking in fields of flowers. And Inner Worlds sounds like what must be going on in McLaughlin's brain when trying to just get through a day. Not my favorite overall, but definitely worth keeping.
