A Different Map of the World

"I am utterly entranced by this album. For me it paints a certain picture of the world: crowded, high-speed, claustrophobic, hyper-stimulated, with many sources of information coming simultaneously--like multiple TVs and radios at once. At times it's bluesy, exuberant, angry, grungy, kick-ass, melancholy. I don't find it tongue-in-cheek as some seem to. I think it's a sincere effort by an artist of immense range who is willing to take risks. For me it works. There is an emotional coherence, and ultimately has the sense of journey that all of Pat Metheny's work does. By the end I feel I've been taken places I wouldn't have found on my own."

"An interesting piece by a true master. Metheny is constantly pushing the boundaries of his ability as a composer & player. 'Zero Tolerence' is a difficult listen for most but is an interesting insight into the mind of a great artist. /GQ"

"Kinda like U2 and 'Pop', etc., Pat Metheny became such a big name and could tell his label 'this is what I want to do' and they had no choice but to release it. Note that it's been OOP for QUITE a while. I, of course, a devoted Pat fan bought my copy fresh off the truck for full price and some weeks later sold it at a second-hand record store for a buck. Pat Metheny is a VERY, VERY talented man and I have been a fan since 1978, but sometimes I think his head 'swells' a bit....and someone needs to bring him down. This is NOT music.....don't look for a 'Secret Story', a 'Phase Dance' (although I think some phase SHIFT is in here)....think 'Offramp' meets 'Pretty Scattered' played backwards."
