1 stars After hearing the new direction the band took, I didn't bother to buy "Discipline" which I found catastrophic. I got this album instead... still got very disappointed. Of the early King Crimson, only cheeziness and the Frippertronics remain... where did the prog and the rock go?

I will only highlight three songs on this album, the rest being way below average. "Heartbeat" is a great... pop song. "Sartori In Tangier" is a beautiful instrumental with oriental influences. And "Two Hands" is a great ballad (though it doesn't reach the beauty of "Matte Kudesai" from the same period).

Rating: 54/100
