Q - 2/00, p.1004 stars out of 5 - "...it's among the best 'fusion' records ever made, its funky alliances of twittering Afro-percussion and high-tensile rock spine building into a kind of electric rainforest music of an almost political intensity..."
Down Beat - 1/17/745 Stars - Excellent - "...Herbie translates 'communicate directly' pretty much into 'get down.' The warp-drive electronic space flights of CROSSINGS and SEXTANT have given way to a more basic music, harmonically simple and rhythmically earthy....[HEADHUNTERS] speaks its message--loud and clear..."
JazzTimes - 9/97, p.65"...a preeminent example of sophisticated funkology....this is where it all started."

Head Hunters has spawned a thousand copies and copyists, but is only strengthened through comparison. One of the most enduring works of the 70s' jazz/funk legacy, and surely one of Herbie Hancock's most enjoyable and infectious recordings, the album was released in the deeply groovy days of 1973, and soon became the best-selling record in jazz history. Loping along on a glorious bed of springy wah-wah and synth bass, the group used all the new technology of the time, and Hancock himself seemed to revel (as he still does) in the latest keyboard sounds available to him. Jazz/funk has never again sounded so exciting and dangerous.
