Domino Theory continues in the same vein of slick Jazz/Fusion as Weather Report's previous album, Procession. The line up remains the same and fans of Procession will find much to enjoy here too.

Though Domino Theory is a very good album it doesn't quite match its predecessor for quality.

Domino Theory is the fourteenth studio album by Weather Report, released in February 1984. Here's more proof that Weather Report actually became a more potent, life-affirming musical force after the departures of its best-known sidemen.

Domino Theory was the first album on which Zawinul used drum machines. The drum machine is for composing music perfectly, Zawinul explained to John Diliberto. But not with Weather Report. I did it on the beginning of ‘Predator’ on Domino Effect, but I don’t want to do it just to show people, ‘Hey, everybody, I can do that. I love that kind of playing, too. I really have to do my own record so people know what I’m about–not Victor Bailey with Weather Report or Victor Bailey with Hugh Maskela, but the real me, right there on tape. Blue Sound–Note 3 (Zawinul) 6:48. A concert staple of later versions of Joe’s post-Weather Report band, The Zawinul Syndicate
