5 stars Rebirth.

Considered by many to be their best, LTIA nevertheless has some lacks. A theme here can be abandoned on its very progression (“Easy Money” opening riff, LTIA-1 coda’s 5/4 violin bridge), or mutilate into something hardly bearable. On the other hand, “The Talking Drum” is a simple jam over catchy bass-line, and it goes this way all his length. But the record has “Exiles” and LTIA-2, and that’s enough to regard it as a Masterpiece. The best rhythm section ever existed (Wetton/Bruford) plus Muir and Cross talents made live shows of those times simply awesome and amazingly captivating. Musical press was completely shocked: KC step on the stage and play for 1,5 hours anything they wish!!! You need not to understand this music or try to analyze it; you must simply listen to it to know if you like such stuff or not. LTIA caught this atmosphere even better than SABB or “The Great Deceiver” recordings; this is an ultimate KC, hated/loved for these tracks all over the world. LTIA-2 is still a mandatory live number, should I say more? Highly recommended

Prog-jester | 5/5 |
