Crazy.

The most ridiculous thing about this album is the double trio. Two guitars, basses and drummers. This combination creates a mass amount of rhythms, textures and improv. I love the sound of this album, it is EXTREMELY heavy and loud. Comparison's can be drawn to the Red era of Crimson.

Belew finally carries some songs by his vocals alone which he hadn't been able to do since the 'Discipline' album. The guitars are violent and crushingly heavy, near an industrial type sound. The drums are very processed and add to the effects, and the drummers on here display ultimate technicality. All in all, this creates an awesome record, but still not one of the better Crimson records.

I recommend this to fans of the band as they will fine great stuff on here. The non-Crimson might want to take caution in approaching this. Sounds old but, this isn't a typical Crimson album.
