4 stars At last it happened! Tony Levin, great bassist of King Crimson ( and Peter Gabriel, between many others) released the album, which is his real solo album, and is on the level of his great talent.

I listened many his previous solo works, but no one was so good. Being extremely great musicians in collaborations, his solo albums all were more comfortable mix of symphonic prog, some cheese jazz fusion, etc. And almost all of them just had his name on the cover, he never was areal leader, more just one of collaborators.

For a first time things were changed. This album is real bass/Stick player's album. With support of another great KC musician, drummer Pat Mastelotto, Tony rocks here! Great deep groovy Stick is main instrument, but it is real music! Complex, different, heavy, even with some Tony vocals!

Whenever rhythm team is same as KC, you will easily hear many Crimsonian moments in the music of this album. But - Crimsonian moments on their best. Nervous pulsation, some dark melodies, clever and tasteful sound. No traces of pseudo romantic cheese sound which destroyed so many previous Levin's compositions!

Best Levin's album to time, great KC-three music. Absolutely must have for every KC/ProjeKts fan.

4,5 for sure!
