3 stars The activity of reformative music of Bill faces the revolution with this album in the age. It is guessed that the directionality at which he had consistently aimed continued without extremely changing though some the reasons exist. However, it is true in this album that became it for them at the end that groping and the change were surely seen. It is an element of POP by the song of Jeff after Allan secedes though the flow of the music character is followed. And, it was likely to listen to the performance of the person who was called John Clark of the guitar player who changed into Allan and joined the band and to have compared it by the listener with Allan a little being puzzled. The appointment of famous work with "Weather Report" Ron Malo certainly expands the width of the sound a little on the contrary. However, I do not understand whether the appointment of Amanda Persons and Barbara Gaskin acted well with this album, too. The listener might feel that the element of Hatfields and National Health is certainly taken to this album. Element..POP..element..combine..a little..directionality..chaotic..impression..give.All tunes are not the translations at all said it is bad. The musician who gathers has a high technology. However, they might have had them a little established of the habit of each performance too much. Live and the tour were high very performances of the level. However, the cost of carrying or carrying out machine parts is true in them becoming it impossibility to put out work due to the event. Not having succeeded in commerce except a high-quality performance received clarified sarcastic.

Tune "Age Of Information" guitar that symbolizes this time really recalls Allan because it has the tension of the level that is POP a little. And, "Gothic 17" impressive the progress of the code that Dave performed at the time of "Egg" Dave that performs such a tune shines really. I am wishing still when it wants you to pursue this sensibility further.

Jeff is trusted Bill has been rejected to Robert Fripp though they tried to participate in King Crimson in the 80's. The situation of Prog Rock might have moved to the revival of Crimson in the 80's and the revolution and the tohubohu be pressed to the situation of a surrounding band.
