went and copped On the Corner... it's certainly a unique Miles album on par with some of his other shit. i know that this is one of those albums that will take repeated listens to grasp, but based on the few spins i've given it so far...

i gotta give it to Headhunters by a good margin. maybe it's because i burned myself out on Bitches Brew years ago but i just didn't hear alot that i haven't heard before from him. it doesn't take away from the album, i guess my expectations were a little too high. the african rhythms are cool but the heavy funk on Headhunters is just more my style. also, Headhunters covers much more ground as a album where OTC is pretty much just one feel throughout.

btw- i got to see Herbie live about two years ago and it was FUCKING MINDBLOWING! the most absract, atmospheric shit i've ever heard in my life. the drummer didn't play a downbeat for two hours! a few people were even leaving early because they came expecting Headhunters and couldn't grasp what they were hearing. Herbie every bit as genious as Miles, believe that.
