This album is incredible, I believe that it is a must buy for all avant-garde fans. It features Ronald Shannon Jackson on Drums, Bill Laswell on bass, Sonny Sharrock on Guitar, Peter Brotzmann on Taragato, Stritch and Sax. This album is rare because Laswell was able to get Brotzmann into a studio, even though he is a staunch free-improvisationalist. In my opinion, all jazz/rock fusion artists should listen to this to expand their universe of what can be accomplished with aggressive music.

It's amazing that there's only one review for one of the few studio albums that Sonny Sharrock made late in his career. While critics are apt to praise the live albums that Last Exit put out, the truth is that "Iron Path" is an essential purchase for all who can't get enough of Sharrock's masterpiece "Ask the Ages." "Iron Path" stands shoulder-to-shoulder to that album. Sharrock's work here is phenomenal, but special mention also must go to Ronald Shannon Jackson on drums (and he sounds so much better here than on the live recordings), as well as the incomparable Peter Brotzmann on sax. The work they do here is amazing. While the live Last Exit albums were mainly improvized jams, the songs on "Iron Path" are, like those on "Ask the Ages," seemingly composed. This album has too long been neglected and is long due for reconsideration.

... being a fan of bill laswell from late eighties on i'd have to say that this recording, along with Hear No Evil under his name and Material's Seven Souls were where i got my first glimmerings of his exceedingly comprehensive vision of a possible 'world music' (that term rankles me as does 'punk', 'MOR', etc etc...essentially label identification for people more interested in 'life style channeling' than music). maybe laswell's music could be called 'cross-cultural psychedelic' or 'yo mammies pink drawers'... frankly, no labels do justice to the vast territories he's mapped in the last 25 years.... honestly, this guy was growing up in mid-Michigan at about the same time i was a bit north and a bit west (midnight altered swims in the summer twixt Ludington and Manistee with teen mermaids)and i've wondered for years if the Albion, MI area perhaps had a mysterious weed that a few adventerous types were gobbling... nothing in the contemporary music scene comes close to the demons and angels conjured by Mr L... between his Indian Music and Middle eastern affiliations and the result thereof, the forays into Dub and Trance... the resurrection of aging visionaries (Ginger Baker, Funkadelic, the Last Poets, etc)... the ability to root out, use, reuse, remix that which is truely genuine and 'true' in many styles and sub-styles is unchallenged and totally unique in 'modern music'....on this, the one and only studio recording by Last Exit and with help from Brotzman, Jackson and Sharrock (all worthy of seperate and glowing mention) a warning shot is fired over the heads of the mass of music consumers of '88- as i recall, few heard- a review in our local entertainment paper (which was only there because it was written by the singer to a highly creative band of that era, the Appliances...thank you Tom...Read more ›

Way more structured railings from the fiery quartet lays down some interesting ideas, though lacks much of a visceral punch free-form antics previously persuaded.
