Comments:  The solo in "AS" is actually played by none other than Herbie Hancock. It's really cool to listen to the way that Herbie and Stevie interplay, they both have such unique rhodes sounds.

Comments:  as beloved as this album is, it doesn't hold up to comparison with its predecessors. indeed, there are some extremely strong songs here, but there is also far too much chaff in with the wheat.... for every "i am singing" and "i wish" there is an accompanying meandering jam that doesn't really get off the ground or history-lesson-within-a-song that bogs the preceedings down. conveniently, this record splits stevie's career into two fairly defined autonomous (ie, self-producing) periods: the innervisions-car-crash-writing-his-butt-off period and the (gasp) part-time-lover-just-called-to-say-i-love-you period. despite later glimmers of hope like "send one your love," SINTKOL is stevie's last stand.

Comments:  This one's a winner! Not only do you hear the Rhodes on this album (some songs have it with a cool phasor effect) but you hear the Yamaha Evatone GX-1, probably the largest and heaviest synthesizer ever made.
