Mr. Gone is Weather Report's eighth studio album, and is perhaps best known for receiving a "one-star" rating by Down Beat magazine.

According to Down Beat magazine, "Zawinul, Shorter, et al. have made the controversial music a commercial product; unfortunately ... Weather Report has over-orchestrated its sound." The album was quickly certified Gold, being the follow-up to the widely successful Heavy Weather and topped out at #52 on the Billboard music charts.
