3 stars The first CD on this double set is great. The first track (Beautiful as the Moon...etc) is, I think, one of the greatest pieces of music recorded by HC (the best is 'iving in the Hear of the Beast' on In Praise of Learning). Krause is here but without Slap Happy, just the 'regular' HC. The second track has Robert Wyatt guesting (on his own song) and it definately works. Ruins, also, is great. The rest of the music is rather inconsistent though, and unfortunately, there are no other vocal pieces to break up the very long instrumentals. There is definately some gold in those latter instrumentals, but it takes lots of listening to find, and then remember, where they are, so not too accessible. So, an absolute must for committed HC fans, but for the rest..?
