CMC International Records has done it again. They have taken an established band (in this case, Jefferson Starship), given them complete artistic freedom and the result is a terrific album like "Windows of Heaven." This release is a mind-jolting journey into the stratosphere of the imagination. "Windows of Heaven" deals with a wide range of issues dealing with everything from freethinking, the environment, political correctness, individuality, religion and sex, among others. The recording is full of rich, thick symbolism, multiple meanings and strange little stories. There is enough substance in this CD to establish a major religion.

Of course, not every song on the CD is a winner, but even the bad tunes are Jefferson Starship cool. This mega supergroup from the '60s and '70s has a gem of a recording here and - at the risk of sounding corny - this recording made me feel good just listening to it. Starship has done their job admirably. This recording is really something to behold. I truly enjoyed it. It would have rated 4 chainsaws but some of the ballads were a lot alike and a little boring. Regardless, Jefferson Starship and CMC International combined make a great team. Keep up the good work guys!

Jefferson Starship is: Marty Balin, vocals; Jack Casady, bass; Paul Kantner, vocals and guitars; Diana Mangano, vocals; Slick Aguilar, lead guitar; T. Lavitz, keyboards; Prairie Prince, drums.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
