The only thing better than Birds of Fire is linensitg to The Inner Mounting Flame, and seeing the tremendous development of everyone involved. Ken Scott’s production makes a huge leap, adding massive depth and darkness to the band’s sound. Billy goes from one bass drum to two, and the technical mastery and relaxed ease that he displays will be his signature from this point onward. McLaughlin brings in the double neck (12 & 6 string), and really plays the heck out of it. Listen to Jerry Goodman’s pizzicato violin solo in Miles Beyond – It would have been amazing on a guitar, never mind on a tiny 4-stringed instrument. Jan Hammer not only starts playing synth here, but adds washes, mood-altering background sounds, and starts employing his guitar-sounding synth patch that would also become his signature in the future. Even Rick Laird, normally solid and unspectacular, gets his chance to shine on One Word. I cannot recommend this album highly enough, or overstate it’s importance
