4 stars This record is strongly early King Crimson influenced. Indeed, most of the early King Crimson players are present here, except Robert Fripp: Greg Lake, Mel Collins, Keith Tippett, Robin Miller, John Wetton, Ian Wallace and Boz Burrell among others. The bass is VERY BOTTOM, while being not aggressive at all! A couples of tracks slightly have the country music style, especially the electric guitars, like on "Will it be you" and on "Envelopes of yesterday". There are many dissonant sax parts. There are often subtly floating keyboards a la "Il Volo". The best track is probably the catchy song "Under the sky", full of delicate flutes, drums and acoustic guitars. "Wholefood Boogie" is a retro boogie full of rhythmic piano and low-pitched saxes. Greg Lake sings on "Still", a catchy track starting very slowly. "Envelopes of Yesterday" has the Pink Floyd's "Meddle" style, in a bit more joyful way. The beautiful "The Piper" has VERY delicate & peaceful flute and acoustic guitar parts. "A House of Hopes and Dreams" starts delicately, and finishes more dynamically with visceral saxes. The last track "The Night People" is different: it sometimes sounds like the Nick Mason's "Fictitious sports" album, and the last part is very fast and sounds more like free jazz.
