4 stars Being (back then) only familiar with the band's early work, I was quite curious of what King Crimson would sound like in 2003, and quite uncertain of what to expect from a band that exceled in or even defined the term of progress back in 1970, and whether they would be able to stand up to this challenge, of progressing in the present days. I must admit I was suprised by how amazing this album was. I believe it is driven a bit out of the rock borders into a quite new style, that have also been around Fripp's experimental works and projects or Crimson's previous albums. These one made feel like being lost in a city, surrounded by industries, voices, suffocation but finding beauty and liberation at the same time. It is quite difficult to explain the exact feeling, but this album is not only breathtaking, but even trapping into a sequence of emotions that leads to a constant listen. As an addition I would like to state that I have never been disappointed by this band, so this one might not seem that great to those that are not really fans of Crimson's latest albums.
