"The Bruford Tapes demonstrated a more raucous energy than Brufords first two releases, but the follow-up studio album, Gradually Going Tornado, proved that the group was capable of generating the same kind of power in the studio. And while Berlin's singing on half of the albums eight tracks may have seemed a concerted bid for greater acceptance, its important to note that Bruford had already featured vocals on Feels Good to Me, although the relaxed phrasing of sultry singer Annette Peacock was considerably more artful than Berlins tighter tenor. The inclusion of vocal tracks might have appeared, on the surface, to be a calculated commercial move rather than an artistic one. Still, the fact is that Bruford and Stewarts writing which despite the verse-chorus approach of the vocal tracksretained its harmonic and rhythmic complexities. In that respect Gradually Going Tornado was every bit as progressive as the groups previous albums."-John Kelman/All About Jazz
