5 stars A number of excellent reviews of this recording are already present and I shall not belabor you with another love letter. With the name of this reviewer, it is doubtful that you will believe you will receive an evenhanded review. You are probably correct. It suffices to say, however, that descriptive words cannot adequately paint the picture of the musical experience here. This recording represents Crimson at its most daring, experimental and virtuosic. If one has to find one flaw in the album, it is the thinness of Wetton's vocals in a number of areas. The musicianship of the entire band, however is unquestionable and this record broke new ground. The only way to get a sense of it, however, is to listen to it.
