3 stars "ConstruKction of Light" may not be nearly as innovative as most of the band's output, but it remains a tremendously fun listen nonetheless-- for fans of the "heavy" Crimson anyway. Taken as a whole the songs are very mathematic, industrial even, with lots of rhythmic back flips and cold precise drumming. "ProzaKc Blues" wears thin by the half- way mark, but the successive-- largely instrumental moments is where the real fun begins. A good mixutre of delicate tinkling and super-heavy shredding follows, making for a good mix of the two dynamics. Experimental noises, effects, and atmosphere add a lot to the twisting guitar interplay of Fripp/Belew as well.

Not essential, but highly recommended for fans of the heavy Crimson.
