3 stars First of all, the album sleeve is really cool, it perfectly displays the music of the band: mysterious and a little bit elitaire. Actually this album deserves 3 and a half stars, because the free-jazz is really great, but does'nt beat the power of it's previous albums. Every composition has got technical perfection, but some absences of exitement at the same time, except for the tracks Kings and Queens and Teeth. Fletcher Blemish is'nt really nice, but it's very, very brave. Virtually (all parts) is a bit long winded, but in spite of that it's very good, especially the atmospheric part 3. Very good album, but you have to find the right moment for listening it.
