3 stars I'll begin by saying that King Crimson is my favorite or second favorite band. This 90's comeback record is good to very good, although not without its flaws.

The highlights:

The light sections in the middle of Vroom are beautiful. Dinosaur, Walking on Air, and One Time are beautiful, strong tracks.

The negatives:

People is is a decent, but forgettable funky pop-ish song. The end of the song is the best part, IMO. Sex, Sleep, Eat, Dream is somewhat similar to People in style, albeit with a slower tempo. The main riff and vocals are repetitive. Again, it's not a bad song, only average and kind of forgettable.

Vroom Vroom is strong but also a touch repetitive. It's similar in vein Red era King Crimson.

Overall, between 3 and 3.5 stars.
