Bob James is picking up some extra keyboards here – mixing his usual Fender Rhodes with a bit of Oberheim Polyphonic – but the overall sound of the record is still pretty great, and filled with those warm, spacious tones that make Bob's albums so great! Things are slightly smooth, but never cloying – and there's a number of tracks here that show a strong "Taxi" influence in the way Bob puts together the rhythms and brings the keyboards up in the mix – a style that's slightly gentler than the CTI years, but which also shows a deepening spirit in his work. Titles include "Look Alike", "RushHour", "Blue Lick", "Big Stone City", "Friends", and "Fly Away". CD
