    You'd have to be seriously unmusical not to be charmed by the elegance of it.

    This absorbing new venture is essentially a set of unaccompanied musical dialogues between the two veterans. [Jul 2012, p.94]

    This is collaboration in its purest and and most elegant form.

    While diehard converts won't feel short-changed, others might wonder whether the duo could have sprung more surprises similar to the appearance of the Harlem String Quartet on the classical fantasia Mozart Goes Dancing.
  5. Historic reunion of the piano and vibes duo-masters starts unpromisingly on a hit-you-over-the-head-with-a-mallet version of "Eleanor Rigby", but recovers with gorgeous treatments of Weill's "My Ship" and Jobim's "Once I Loved".

    Burton and Corea opted for their most standard-heavy set to date. They approach classic tunes with an appropriate tone of reverence that unfortunately leaves little room for surprise.

    At both its best and its worst, the album is essentially inoffensive.
