4 stars Compared to their first two masterpieces, "Better Late..." is a tad less in quality, but still an excellent disc to own. The main reason for owning this album is "While Chrome Yellow Shine", and "Labyrinth". They're both as good as anything they've ever done, blazing fast keyboard runs, outstanding guitar work, Wyatt's flourishes of horn and flute work and new drummer CoCo's lightning quick drumming; just plain incredible! The rest of the album compares to their latest work and is excellent, just not jaw- droppingly good as the other two tracks I mentioned. The quality is there. It compares favorably to the first two albums. It's a fine album to own, especially if you're a fan, but for starters, I'd buy the first or second album before this one.
