This is the runner-up to Cobham's famous "Spectrum" album in the heavyweight championship of 1970s fusion drumming & in some ways it's even better. Granted, Mouzon does not play half as many odd-meters as Cobham (who was the ultimate master of odds along with Bill Bruford), but there's something wilder & more greasy about Mouzon's deep smacking grooves, solos & ultra-fast fills that puts things really over-the-top. The Tommy Bolin jams are fantastic--the slow-burn grooves like Golden Rainbows & Snowbound custom-made for cruising & the scorching "Nitroglycerine" for more spaztic moods--but for me "Ascorbic Acid" with Lee Ritenour is the ultimate track on here, the one to use to blow people completely away. Anyone asks you who the fastest drummer in the world is & even mentions someone like Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Smith or Neal Peart, just play them that track & watch them shut-up real quick! It just smokes them into complete awed submission & after that there might be discussions about other aspects of what makes a great drummer but arguments about speed are history.

So, it would have to naturally follow from the strong, enthusiastic words written above that in the pantheon of 'greatest ever fusion albums with plenty of wailing electric guitar,' "Mind Transplant" would have to rate at around number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine............. Here's the rest of my list in case fusion fanatics are interested:

1. Mahavishnu - Cleveland 1972
2. Mahavishnu - The Inner Mounting Flame
3. Mahavishnu - Birds of Fire
4. Mahavishnu - Between Nothingness & Eternity
5. Mahavishnu - Lost Trident Sessions
6. Billy Cobham - Spectrum
7. Nova - Blink
6. Bill Bruford - One of A Kind
7. Brand X - Livestock

....for me, there is no getting around the fact that AM's 'Mind Transplant' was his way of saying, "Hey, Cobham and Lenny aren't the only dudes that can Lay-it-down Funky, Greasy, and (maybe most important) VERY FAST!" When I scrolled through the other reviews written, I almost found myself getting irritated by the constant mention of this album alongside Cobham's 'Spectrum',,,,,but you know what?, now I am in complete agreeance after listening to 'Mind Transplant' again recently....especially considering 'Spectrum' had been out for over a year before this was released.

There are several things that I believe everyone can agree on concerning this album; the musicians that contribute to the tunes are ALL absolutely super-talented and have a special chemistry here. There is no questioning Mr. Mouzon's technical abilities, as well as his ability to lay down greasy, funky grooves when needed----and, straight-up high-speed fushion jams. The compisitions found on 'MT' are all well written fushion tunes (did his WIFE compose these songs!?!) that anyone who digs MO, RTF, early Jeff Beck and the like, should have a field day with. So how do I like it? Well, its right up my alley as to real-deal, high intensity fusion and I rate it with 4 solid stars.

Although I like 'MT' and rate it highly among my jazz-rock collection, I don't place it quite on the level of 'Spectrum' and's why; Above all else, this album seems very contrived. Whereas 'Spectrum' was very Fresh and Inventive in its compositions and overall feel, 'MindTransplant' feels like it was produced mostly out of the competition that exsisted between several of the "Key" Fusion players....

You know something? I really wanted to like this album. I had listened to Billy Cobham's "Spectrum" hundreds of times and been amazed by the kinetic energy and dynamic interplay between all the performers and of Billy's unnerving facility for both assymetry and raw funk in his drum patterns.
I longed for an album in a similar vein that could galvanize me even half as much as "Spectrum" could, so I'd done my research and discovered that "Mind Transplant" was considered to be Alphonse Mouzon's finest album, as well as one that was usually mentioned in the same breath as "Spectrum" by avid fusion fans.
Maybe my high expectations would only fuel potential disappointment in regards to "Mind Transplant" because I'm afraid that in my view, it falls well short of the mark.
In terms of the sound quality itself, the album sounds like it has been recorded under a wet blanket. This I can't understand, considering the numerous boasts about the superior sound quality and the recent remastering.
Compositionally, the tracks on the album are often just plain weak. The title track starts off well, and then at "1:40" the guitars commence a 6-note riff that is repeated incessantly... infuriatingly... without variation until the song's finish (2 1/2 minutes later!). I find this bridge section so strident and grating now, I have to skip forward to "Snowbound" to prevent the early onset of neurasthenia.
Much has been made of Tommy Bolin's involvement in "Mind Transplant" by Bolin aficionados, but those people familiar with his work as I am will be aware that far from being a genuinely improvisational musician, Tommy tends to have a gamut of stock pentatonic licks that he recycles in different forms. Such is the case here (compare the solo on "Golden Rainbows" to his solo on "Stratus"...
