Rhyme Or Reason grew out of a Saturday afternoon spent in the practice room, improvising on the diminished scale. Fareed really brings this track to life with his electric guitar work - and the ending was rewritten to allow ample solo space for his patented "Wahdude" use of an envelope filter (effects procesor) on his guitar sound.
