4 stars The meat in the 70s KC studio sandwich. My least favorite of the 70s trilogy, but by no means bad. The Great Deciever starts things off perfectly. A true Crimson track. Fast, complex, avanty, fun lyrics and really a powerhouse. Next is Lament. A decent tune, that provides a little cushion after the manic start. Then comes the thrid song. A great little piece to clam thigns down a bit. Then comes The Night Watch. A spooky track with great vocals and guitar work. A fantastic piece. Then comes Trio, an instramental that is ok. Then The Mincer, a extension of the previous, but it ends great. The title track was a bit over long, but offers some memorable moments. Finally comes Fracture, an explosive little instramental. The end is true Crimson yet again. All in all, this shows what KC was capable of live, interjected into a studio album. Certainly the most improv based work in the KC studio catalogue (at least of the 70s). Recommended to fans of this type of music.
