4 stars This album, Robert Fripp's second attempt at recording with his wife, Toyah Willcox, is a much more successful venture than "The Lady Or The Tiger?". It sounds very much like "Discipline"-era King Crimson, with Willcox singing beautifully in a style that falls somewhere between Kate Bush and Nina Hagen.

The band consists of Fripp, along with KC stick player Trey Gunn and drummer Paul Beavis. The music has Fripp mostly playing the same sorts of guitar patterns that he used in the 80's Crimson, with Gunn weaving the stick around them. The result again is similar to KC, but without Adrian Belew, it actually seems to have more elegance. And that works, because the best part of this album is Willcox' sexy, breathy vocals.

The best tracks? They're all very good, but I'd have to pick Strange Girls and Storm Angel as my favorites.

Evolver | 4/5 |
