    This aint just a land mark album.. Its a freakin meteor that struck a planet and shook the entire earth and changed the landscape. Groundbreaking, breathtaking,aweinspiring,overwhelming and so on whatever u can think of this album is trailblazing.. even moreso than other contemporary miles's landmark jazzfusion albums such as bitches brew and in a silent way. John was a major contributor in those albums which two virtuosos feeding off each others geniusness and created something thats is gut wrenching yet so beautiful at the same time. Im glad to have waited for so long to revisit this album.. Couldnt amaze me more. And talk about the man himself John mclaughlin.such a humble guy.. Meeting him in person was an absolute delight and kudos to him for still engaging with the fans like he does. A true gentleman

    Ok.. Here goes a praise bit like a crazy rant but its been what? Nearly a decade since i had a proper listen to inner mounting flame. I have a weird habit of not listening to albums i really like... Sort of saving them up for an occasion when i need them most because even great albums wears off sometimes especially when its listened too often and as time goes by they lose that tingling electric high u get as a virgin listener. I remember the first time i listened to mahavishnu i was like is this even real??? Is this fuc*in real??? and i thought that was pretty intense experience back then. But finally.. After all those years and listening to the inner mounting flame again i am totally lost of words.. That reaction i had back then isnt anywhere near comparable..Oh my my my my mouth was open during the entire play of the album with jaw dead dropped probably looked like a total fool if someone caught me with that face but i mean who wouldnt???

    Of the albums after 1973, I like "Apocalypse" the most. I like the orchestral stuff and the band is pretty solid. But I much prefer the original line-up. A band that was never not on fire and influential to so many to come after.

    Well don't we go a long way to return to where we started. Was listening to some Terje Rypdal some weeks ago which lead me to a YouTube concert with Billy Cobham from 1994 where they did Birdland (Weather Report). Which reminded me of the Crosswinds album I used to have until it was nicked by the cops during a drugs raid. So I got a replacement from Amazon along with Weather Report, and the MO box set which arrived today, and I'm waiting on some Crusaders compilation box set.

    This respected group has always sought to extract a diverse and deep sound. They have always been adventurous in the choice of material, and in the philosophical approach to the music. They produce a great impression of a mixture of artistry and power of influence. It makes sense to have them for your own collection.

    SAGYology have to agree with you about Visions of the Emerald Beyond. Even the NAME of the album is amazing.

    So I put off listening to Mahavishnu Orchestra for years. Never had anything against McLaughlin or anything, always thought he was great, I ended up putting off the group for ages... UNTIL NOW AND HOLY MOLY IS THIS SHIT FANTASTIC!!

    Visions of the Emerald Beyond is by far their best album and I love almost all of them. It's MO's absolute creative peak.
