3 stars This is a great modern album by one of the finest older bands. Crimson always find innovative ways to explore and experiment within the limitations and possibilities presented to them. In the late 60s and 70s Crimson experimented with sounds in a much different manner than they do now. Today's technology offers more possibilities for creative minds ready to push boundaries.

Some parts sound like classic crimson and make me smile, other times there is a certain modern feel and this new spice comes by a little strong - something I don't mind, but others may detest. Those sections are, in a way, mechanical, electrical, industrial, but still organic, honest, cosmic, spacey, and compelling. But regardless, this is great music, capable of provoking thought, emotion, memory and adrenaline. Congratulations, Crimson, you will never cease to be Kings of prog.
