4 stars Their best stuff since the 70's.

An impressive modern release, that is flowing, captivating, and very rewarding. Heads up to those who are fans that this is a very hard rocking piece of work, with few if any traces of symphonic flair to it.

King Crimson even experiments with post-rock, on Dangerous Curves, a track that builds throughout. As others have said, Level 5 can be seen as a continuation on the LTIA project. It's not as great as the first 2, but it's still very good material. Some of this is much more accessible to other music listeners than their earlier material, but the creativity is not lost.

This record shows to me that Fripp and Co. still have it, and I'd love for them to make one more record (if not two) because they still produce inspiring and unique material. I might have this overrated a tad because of my likeness to the band, but I believe fans of their mid-70's material would enjoy this.
