4 stars I must say, the Adrian Bellew-era stuff has been running thin on me since the "Beat" album. As a fan of mostly the older material, I was excited about this release as soon as it was announced ... particularly since Mel Collins was returning ("Islands" and "Lizard" are my favorite Crim records). I must say, for me personally, this new album does not disappoint, and like all good Crimson records requires a few close listenings to understand what is going on. On the third listen, I think its phenomenal mid-tempo, jazzy, moody King Crimson, recalling "Formentera Lady", "Cadence and Cascade", "Moonchild", etc. Just buy it, listen to it in headphones and fall into the brilliant atmosphere it presents!
