3 stars ProjeKct Two's "Space Groove" is 90 minutes of improvs from three members of King Crimson. Here Adrian Belew uses a V-Drum kit which gives a very groovy rhythm section, and Trey Gunn's guitar playing gives the spacey touch. The first part of the album has two long tracks while the second part consists of more diverse small pieces.

"Space Groove" starts with "Space Groove II" (according to the sleeve it was the first track laid down so why the II?) - 19+ minutes of odd but very enjoyable jamming. Parts III and I are less interesting, and probably too much repetitive after listening to Part II.

"Vector Patrol" starts with the joyful "Happy Hour On Planet Zarg". After two fillers, the music becomes really spacey with "Sector Shift"/"Laura In Space"/"Sector Drift"/"Sector Patrol" - one of the best moments on the album. After two new uninteresting tracks, the beautiful "Deserts Of Arcadia" (two parts) brings the music to another dimension - some kind of intergalactic journey into unexplored dimensions... A new filler again introduces "Escape From Sagittarius A", the longest track of the second disc and another fine moment.

Rating: 70/100 ("Space Groove") + 73/100 ("Vector Patrol")
