Considered by many critics to be their finest effort, the group's 1979 release, "Product", gave instrumental fans a jolt with the inclusion of two Phil Collins vocal numbers ("Soho", "Don't Make Waves") - blatent attempts to expand the audience by melding pop with fusion. However, the instrumental tracks dominate and continue the brilliant musicianship established by Brand X's first few studio albums. Goodsall manages to fit plenty of furious fusion guitar into the CD's nine tracks, and even fans of bass guitar will love the attention paid to the low end (check out Peter Jones' intro to "Not Good Enough - See Me!"). Essential Brand X.
