4 stars An album very strange, by the way.

Forget the sound of 69-74 years: what we have here is a King Crimson influences with exotic, in line with the "world music". But none of this makes it a masterpiece like "In the Court of Crimson King", "Larks' Tongues in Aspic" or "Red " (my favorite albums of KC). I have nothing against the new band's sound, while listening to Adrian Belew speaking on "Elephant Talk" and "Indiscipline" give me the nerves, will not coincidence, these are the tracks that I hate most in album. Although he sings very well in "Matte Kudasai" - my favorite track, next to "Frame by Frame" and "Thela Ginjeet Hun"(in this, the lines of Belew help, not hurt.). The other two tracks are average - The title track is nothing special, while "The Sheltering Sky" is sustained by Bruford percussion, the Frippertronic, I think of ... you-know-who and the Chapman Stick of excellent Tony Levin (bass hear this reminds me of the album "Liquid Tension Experiment 1 ").

3,5 stars, rounded up.
