4 stars The sequel to Sometimes God Hides, this, again, features a hugely eclectric array of artists who have appeared on Fripp's Discipline label.

King Crimson are, again, very well represented, with highlights for me being live versions of Dinosaur and Easy Money.

There are a fair few more jazzy pieces than the first compilation, and the Bruford Levin collaborations, especially, do take a bit of listening to.

Peter Hammill's work, again, proves just what an exceptional vocal artist he is, and I must mention here the exceptional Native of the Rain by Tony Geballe, a great track.

Those who enjoyed Belew's solo stuff on the first album will find more of the same here, and I really enjoy it.

Fripp's solo stuff also must be mentioned, especially the haunting Pie Jesu and On My Mother's Birthday.

A simple review can never really hope to convey the magic of this and its predecessor. They are, in my opinion, essential purchases for those who wish to move beyond early Crimson such as Epitaph & etc. and explore the sometimes weird, very diverse, but ultimately deeply satisfying world of Fripp, Crimson, and Discipline as one of the essential eclectric labels of our time.
