Thrust, the 1974 follow-up to the breakthrough Headhunters album, was virtually as good as it's wildly successful predecessor and it also reached #13 on the Billboard LP chart. Herbie Hancock continued to reach into the rapidly changing high-tech world for new sounds, most notably the metallic sheen of the then-new ARP string synthesizer which was already becoming a staple item on pop and jazz-rock records. The set includes four extended tracks, three of which concentrate on the funk. The change-of-pace is "Butterfly," one of Hancock's loveliest electric pieces.
