2 stars I don't know, don't these guys care about vocals at all? Is it like they just expect the vocalist to 'do his best' and try an fit in some big words in some complex songwriting and try then focus mostly on the instrumental section.

And as for the instrumental sections. Yeah, it's really good. But it's not like they weren't doing something similar since the Lizard album. It seems they make very eccentric sounding music, which sometimes is brilliant, but often their music ends up same samey.

John Wetton basically has to rush his vocals out the way quickly so the Fripp and co can proceed with their instrumental work.
