4 stars The activity of Adrian Belew in "Discipline" of King Crimson might have perplexed a fan at that time and the listener a little. It might be talked as the case may be opinions of course compared in consideration of all the parts of the music character that King Crimson did and thought. However, Adrian Belew in King Crimson had had the talent very since the 80's and will have been the matter by the proof of the supernatural power of Robert Fripp that stared at the part. It is made remarks that Adrian Belew also always loved music of King Crimson for a long time.

However, the part of King Crimson that American's member had joined in the 80's struck close to home to the listener. And, the unknown music that developed rapidly from the part of the music character that King Crimson exactly had that had not been listened before might have been offered to the listener. Of course these elements are the new front for King Crimson and, the influence of the activity of Belew and Levin might be also large. And, having already been advocated by Fripp is a well-known fact in the flow that the band should reach.

Belew with relations in "Tom Tom Club" that progressed with the shape of another project of Talking Heads the 80's exchanged the promise of the Island label and the contract of the Solo album as it was. And, Solo Album of Adrian Belew is announced with the flow that almost runs side by side with King Crimson in the 80's.

The flow that belongs to music with the part of the greeting of Adrian Belew and his diversity exactly and the root might occupy the ratio overall in this album that works in shape with which musicians put on the situation of the period at that time run side by side as it is. Idea expressed with part completed for playing guitar already. Part of freedom of picking. And, various effects are processed. Or, the vocal sound played by the arming is made. These might be his almost patents.

"Big Electric Cat" impressive sound in which animal's voice is duplicated. Part of unique of "The Momur" and "Stop It". "The Man In The Moon" might be one of the tunes of his representative at that time. The idea of this tune has been made the best use of for the tune of other Solo of him. "Naive Guitar" is a tune of which his good, beautiful melody has gone out strongly while multiusing the effect. It might be a technique that only he can exactly do. And, his individuality has gone out enough "Swingline" and "Adidas In Heat". It might be ..content that can be very enjoyed when the performance of man who takes it is Music with exactly a lot of diversitys even in New Wave and an ambient sound in addition to the element of R&B, doo-wop, and Rock exactly.. finished.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the root and the idea of his music might almost be consolidated in this album. His taste might be consistent though his music always changes little by little by the situation.
