4 stars King Crimson is one of rare bands that remained progressive and ambitious through all these years of presense of prog rock. Here they manage to stay in the same line of hteir standards. They start an album with VROOM, which is one of the coolest rock tracks ever, mostly because of two drummers that play together. Mastelotto and Bruford are almost telepatic in their playing here, they surprise anyone with an idea of duble druming. Dinosaur is cool homourous track with some kind of nice mellotron strings; they remind me on some old movies from fifties or so... B'Boom is great drum solo: this one beats almost every other solo from past, including those of Rush, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Soft Machine... And it functions as a track as well, with those nice textures under it, atmosphere is somehow apoccaliptic, and is followed by nice small song, Inner Garden I. People is somehow funky with cool bass, and as always interesting Belev's lyrics. Similair is Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream song. Beautiful emotional songs are Walking On Air and One Time, these need to be heard to be understood, as it is everything about emotions, but never too harsh. This band influenced so many artists at different genres, as I notice THRAK song to be something totally new, those weird, sharp guitars, uneven, crazy rhythms, it influenced some complex metal bands. I am pleased with this work, none part is weak, what a nice comeback after so many yeras of rest.
