5 stars Hmmm... looking at the reviews here I decided to add my point of view - totally different as I see, if only for the balance. I have lots of very personal feelings for this album, but let's put it aside. I think this is one of the best albums by KC, and that means: one of the best all over the place... It's all instrumental improvisations, yes indeed, and quite different from for example improves from seventies - it has no climaxes and bursts of energy as the improvised pieces in '70 did. But I think it shouldn't be compared - this is totally different than anything I ever heard (even in Crimson family). Show me anything resembling "Thrakattak"! This is really unique. Goeas far beyond the boundaries of rock, further than anything KC made before - i think. In this case - this "bravity" was fully succesfull. And has a lot of magic - if listened to very patiently, when actually LISTENED TO. Now, when we have all these lots of KC collector's club concerts - we can find more of "double trio" improves - all really great. But this form is - IMHO - the best and creates a completely new quality. I was quite dissapointed, listening to the 3 disc of "Heavy Construction". I expected something like "thrakattak" - but music was not as good, and all these annoying breaks between pieces of music spoilt the whole thing. Here we have everything perfect and absolutely unique.
