5 stars This is, hands down, my favorite studio Crimson record. My one recommendation to anyone who wants to get into Crimson is to check out their live stuff. The Great Deceiver set is awesome, as is Vroom Vroom. The ProjeKcts box set is also a favorite of mine simply because of the fact that it pushes the boundaries of music very far in an incredible improvised setting. Anyway, this album just has really great songs on it. I love John Wetton's bass work on this album, especially on Providence and Starless. Providence is one of the weirdest jams I have ever heard, and I love it every time I listen to it. Wetton's bass is so present towards the end of the song, and it's just so growly. I absolutely love it. Wetton's vocals are also significantly improved over Larks' Tongues. I can't say too much about this album but that I think it is the best that the seventies Crimson put out. Check it out for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Impeccable album.
