5 stars By far the best Henry Cow album ever, the pinnacle of the RIO movement!

This "modern chamber" english band started to make some noise with "LegEnd" but was this, their third album "In Praise of Learning" in which they reached the climax of their prog maturity. With Dagmar Krause as the vocalist, the strong and radical political ideas of the band and the left-wing orientation of the band leaders Chris Cutler and Tim Hodgekinson. As any RIO band an album, it's really hard at first listen, but it will eventually grow on you, and (in my case) it's extremely addictive, the beautiful blend of Avant-garde chamber, free- form rock and jazz (with fascinating improvised parts) is simply a wonderful work of art. Timeless, complex music.
