2 stars The "double trio" line-up is here reduced to a "double duo" which tried to blend Adrian Belew's lyrics, improvs with influences from the old days and new influences from the experiences with the ProjeKcts.

"ProzaKc Blues" (very strange vocals here), "Into The Frying Pan" and "The World's My Oyster Soup Kitchen Floor Wax Museum" are very irritating to listen with the silly lyrics and melodies. "FraKctured" and "Larks' Tongues In Aspic - Part IV" are pale efforts to go back to the roots - I didn't like "Larks' Tongues In Aspic" and "Fracture" too much, and I like those two new songs even less. Rest the melodic "The ConstruKction Of Light" which would be a summary of the ProjeKCts era and the beautiful "Coda : I Have A Dream".

Rating: 66/100
