3 stars Fisrt a note: Michael Bloom is not on this album. He dis not join the band until the next album. And yes, it is that Michael Bloom. Accomplished music writer (I have a great Trouser Press edition where he sat down with Frank Zappa), and called by Robert Fripp "clueless and slightly slack" in one of the King Crimson boxed set booklets (Bloom says that's a badge of honor).

Anyway. This is not a bad album. Not a great album either, but it's a pleasant listen. With John Fahey on board, this set sways back and forth between bluesy swamp folk acoustic guitar with ominous backing instruments and sounds, and all-out sonic experimentation. My favorite is the latter. As I said, it's not bad to listen to, but I wouldn't make this an everyday experience.
