Like Binker & Moses, I Am is best described as a semi-free group, and also like Binker & Moses the duo varies the intensity level from track to track, and reaches extremities of sonic passion mostly through the use of "conventional" technique; Collier and Golding both employ vocalization but avoid the altissimo register.

Also like the Londoners, I Am has a penchant for florid track titles, although going by press statements from Collier and Ode, and the use of percussionist and "sound healer" Jimmy Chan on the album's shamanistic opener, "Invocation," the Chicagoans' overall trajectory is closer to the explicit spirituality of Coltrane (and Jones) than that of the sci-fi-ish Golding and Boyd. But wherever it is coming from, Beyond is the real deal. - All About Jazz
