"A group made up of Seamus Blake, Tim Hagans, Kevin Hays, Larry Grenadier and Billy Drummond (add Mark Turner on some of the tracks) promises a lot, but this album sadly disappoints. Kevin Hays uses a Fender Rhodes on some of the tracks, creating the sort of funky mush you used to hear on albums by Eddie Harris. Other tracks are straightforward blowing in the contemporary vein, often adding a boppish sound. Recorded a year after his brilliant debut "The call", Blake seems to be looking for a new approach. Retorting to rather old-fashioned bebop and funky grooves, changing approach from one track to the other, creates an album which doesn't seem to know just what it wants."
