Any opinions on John McLaughlins last album?

Wondering if anyone has any opinions they'd like to share about John McLaughlins last CD "Floating Point"(2008) recorded in India with many Indian musicians. I've read a few reviews that weren't very enthusiastic mainly because it isn't as energetic as his old stuff.
Anything McLaughlin with Indian musicians should be excellent... although may never again equal Shakti's "Natural Elements"

I find the playing and composition on Floating Point to be more cerebral than passionate. Though the musicians are excellent, the band lacks a second strong personality to push him (think Jan Hammer on early Mahavishnu or Larry Coryell on Spaces). Nonetheless it's an excellent album, and once again I want to go burn my guitars after hearing it.

As John has matured his playing has evolved, and he often prefers to focus on the ensemble sound rather than personal pyrotechnics.
JM is a virtuoso but his music is cold. Surprising since the man's spirituality has always been a factor in his music. The music lacks soul. Perhaps this is only my anglo-american perspective but this my opinion. The only time the record gets me going are on the last 2 cuts. I always end my commentaries about JM(here & elsewhere)with this simple thought; God, why doesn't he pick up the ol' Les Paul or even the ol' double-neck!!?? That synthesized guitar, as state-of-the-art as it may be it actually sounds dated!
JM's 'Live In Tokyo' album doesn't seem cold at all. How about Sunday Night at San Fransisco? I don't find his passages to be cold either...
