4 stars 1980s incarnation of King Crimson, minus John Wetton, instead Tony Levin and Adrien Belew on guitars. What stands out for me is Belew's guitars, they're just so inventive the elephant noises on Elephant Talk is a prime example. Belew is bost a masterful guitar player but also very creative and original on it. On first listens this album might sound like a Talking Heads clone, this is due to Belew's vocals, but after a few listens there is more to this album than meets the eyes in particular the excellent guitar textures. I admit that Thela Hu Ginjeet is a little too close to Heads for comfort and Matte Kudasi sounds a little too similar to Fleetwood Mac's song Albatross, but despite this weaker tracks you are treated to Frame by Frame (brilliant), Indiscipline (which is a link to King Crimson's past and similar to a track on Fripp's supurb solo album Exposure). Ovewrall I find the guitar textures intriguing and the world music ideas. Four Stars, sound nothing like 70s King Crimson but still very progressive and has a lot of interesting ideas in it.
