3 stars King Crimson comes back in 2003 with a modern album. Not their finest, but an album of its time. The Machines are omnipresent, the themes are actual, and the music as aggressive as their best work. But it does not necessarily works well. Some songs are good, but nothing more. The musicianship is as usual up to the taks, but it seems the magic is lost. Fripp and co. tries too much to make a monster rises up again, but really, the great mutualism between the musicians seems lost. King Crimson has searched itself for some years now, but they still havent found the form they once had. Still, a Crimson album is better than the average album from the average band, so in 2003 it was a great album. But don't buy this one as an introduction to King Crimson, really. If you're a veteran listenener of Fripp and Crimso, than you COULD enjoy it quite a lot. 3/5
