4 stars Looking at the front cover, I was expecting something sounding like 'Ultravox' or some punk band - particularly as they had the name U.K. It wasn't until I found out Bruford and Wetton were present that I bought this.

Listening to this album makes me realise that the two guys here were under an incredibly tight rein under Fripp during the recording of 'Red'.

This self titled album sounds much more free and alive than the much darker and foreboding 'Red'. In a way it's similar to 'Yes' from the mid 70's but with a far better vocalist who has not inhaled Helium for 10 years,

As previous reviewers have stated, this really is the last great Prog album for many years to follow. It's a lively encounter which surprisingly sounds nothing like King Crimson. It's far more upbeat with plenty of adventurous drumming from Bill Bruford and lots of vocals by John Wetton who's voice is highly suited to this type of music

Such a pity he moved on to the abominable 'Asia'

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
