5 stars Truly an incredible album, LTIA is probably KC's second best. The music on here is just so intense. The title track is one of the most powerful instrumentals ever. Part one is a tension builder that ends in one of the greatest releases of all time, part two a great riff oriented piece with some very catchy parts. Book of Saturday is a very relaxing little ballad with this great kind of lamenting guitar that just melts the listener into his seat. Exiles, my favorite track on the album, is one of the greatest, most epic laments of all time with Fripp's most sympathetic guitar playing ever. Easy Money is a funky catchy number, and The Talking Drum is a great eerie groove that evolves into some nice improv. This is, in my opinion, one of the greatest, most powerful albums of all time and truly a masterpiece of progressive music, and I truly do not throw the term around. There are albums that I give 5 stars because they are extremely good, but this is a masterpice, it's a whole 'nother story.
