4 stars I have to say, after I found out about this release I was so looking forward to get it. I didnt have success for many years until I found a japanese copy last year, had to pay almost $ 50 US for it!!! But I wasnt any disappointed at all I have to tell ya. My favorite tracks are Suite in C and Birdman. This record resembles more the sound of Giles, Giles & Fripp than the sound of King Crimson, maybe its because you have both Giles brothers here without Fripp. Anyways, the musicianship here is excellent, Ian McDonald plays some great sax and flute and Mike Giles an excellent drumming. Peter Giles is also great on the bass. The voice duets on some of the tracks sounds very 60s like the Beatles, which I find it pretty cool. Anyways if you have the luck to come across this album and the money buy it, recommended.
