To have been alive during the time Mahavishnu Orchestra was making music is one of the high points of my musical life. I only wish I could have seen them live (both incarnations). John McLaughlin has always been a spiritual seeker, and nowhere is that more evident than his composition and instrumentation on Apocalypse. His guitar work on this album is STILL stimulating and exciting as well as being amazingly complex even to this day. JM is a true master of his instrument. The true John McLaughlin, Mahavishnu Orchestra fan will LOVE this album. It is a classic album from a great artist.

The first recording of the second Mahavishnu Orchestra was a real stretch for John McLaughlin, an encounter with Michael Tilson Thomas and the London Symphony Orchestra. The union wasn't taken seriously at the time, and it ended up harming the reputation of Thomas - a remarkably adventurous young conductor who defied the stuffy classical powers-that-be and thus probably delayed his eventual rise to the top - more than McLaughlin.
Apocalypse Music on Vinyl 2019. Not only forming a new and larger version of MO, but also enlisting the aid of orchestrator Michael Gibbs, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and the London Symphony, he creates a song cycle of incredible color, passion, variety and power. With all of the original members of his innovative and surprisingly popular group scattered to the four winds John McLaughlin decided to make the Mahavishnu Orchestra a REAL orchestra and put together an album with the London Symphony acting as a partner and a whole bunch of his virtuoso friends.
