From the liner notes of Rites of Ascension (written by Dave Restivo)

Maclean’s wit and musical intelligence are in full flower on Elasticity of Time and Space, which is a bit like a collage of several facets of Hancock’s influence as well as some unexpected urban influences. The tune shifts from burning-swing to hip-hop with metric modulations and tempo changes which were a hallmark of the Davis rhythm section (bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams), but presented in a way that Hancock would likely never do himself. After a percolating melody whose Blue Note era resemblances are clear, — the band suddenly shifts from uptempo swing to a much slower, groove-infused hip-hop framing — stretching the time before snapping back to the original tempo and feel. Brownman takes a blistering swing solo — his mastery of line construction on energetic display. After a full-band melodic statement the group settles into earthy hip-hop space for a soulful solo by Maclean, this time on Rhodes, punctuated by an appropriately cosmological statement by the illustrious physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Goertzen increases the tempo with insistence, building intensity and urgency before launching into a bombastic solo of his own, punctuated by band shots. The dramatic shifts and varied influences feel as though they snap between markedly different points in our musical history — a true journey through Time and Space.
