2 stars Short on innovation, inspiration and high on the "noise factor", this recording fails to satisfy on a number of levels. Asinine lyrics and distorted vocals aside, the record is just full of plodding, dull, dark, heavy music that sometimes just seems heavy for the sake of being heavy. Other than Trey Gunn's Instrument of the Month Club, there is nothing on this record that even remotely represents anything novel, exciting or fresh whatsoever on this record. The overall impression left with this long time Crimhead is that the lack of real creativity displayed in the recording suggests a need for another lengthy hiatus by the "band" until Mr. Fripp and whatever ensemble he chooses to piece together for subsequent work (whether under the name King Crimson or something else) draw some real inspiration from wherever they draw it from. This recording is neither cutting edge art nor particularly effective craft. It is directionless and wallows in mediocrity.
