Not a 5-star CD, but pretty darn good!

"How someone feels about this release is going to depend completely on what "realm" of jazz he/she is into. If you're into classic "traditional" jazz, this may not be for you. This is full of complex rhythms and wacky progressions, all of which are performed seamlessly. No...this is NOT background music. This is music that requires an ear for minute details. In my opinion, it's an album that represents the Elektric Band's epitome of group composition. They couldn't have gone any further with their music...thus Beneath the Mask came next and was a dud."
Probably the best Elektric Band CD

"I'm not a big fan of Chick Corea's electric work. I think he shines most with his acoustic setups and most of the electric stuff I just find lame. This was music that was trendy in the late 80s, but it's fallen out of favor, for good reason. Most of this fusion stuff is just trite and unimaginative, and the electric instruments didn't really add anything to the music.
But Inside Out is the rare exception. It's the only Elektric Band album I come back to repeatedly, for sure. It's edgy and energetic and the technical brilliance of Chick really comes through. Probably the only good electric album Chick has put out."
