Though as electrifying and astounding as the other songs of the album may be, none match the majestic beauty of the album’s concluding piece, “Spain”. A breathtaking ode to the wondrous jewel of the mediterranean, “Spain” borrows a lot of influence from traditional Spanish music. […]

A parallel can be drawn between this Return to Forever group and the great Sergio Mendes’s Brazilian jazz/pop crossover band Brazil ’66. RTF’s formula could have been changed slightlyand commercial success would have been theirs for the taking. […]

From a historical perspective, this is the most important effort of Corea’s career, quite different than his prior previous progressive or improvising effortsand the pivotal beginning of his career as the most popular contemporary jazz keyboardist in history. […]
