1 stars This "album" was a complete disappointment to me. Terrible sound quality wouldn't matter so much to me, but the chemistry of the band doesn't work. In my opinion, Boz cannot sing to this music context, and he cannot play bass very well. Just listen the opening of the first track, and find the most terrible piece of music you can ever imagine to hear, I fear. The other players have had a very bad ride through the last years with the unstable band. Boz had managed to turn them against Fripp, and after the set they ran onstage to do a basic blues jam as an encore, which they knew their pedantic bandleader cannot play well. Luckily there are some long instrumental jams, so the bold blues "singer" has to keep his too wide mouth shut. Most things in life come in waves, there's seven bad years, and seven good years. After this humiliation Robert got rid of the rest of the band on this album, and formed something unique with Bruford, Muir, Wetton and Cross. Thus this kind of bad moments may be meaningful, forcing the people to change in order to reach more satisfying setups to the future. I understood Boz had also a good career after this, when finding a more suitable band and stylistic direction for him.
