4 stars Drowning in what? Drowning in the King Crimson back catalogue, it sounds like! The process of adding his skilled hand to the latest round of King Crimson remasters seems to have rubbed off on Steven Wilson, because on this double solo album he seems to reference the driving, heavy sound of their mid-1970s period - plus the gentler symphonic side they showed from the debut up to Islands - more than any of the other golden age of prog touchstones he revisits. Not that this is a retro-prog affair by any means - compositions like Index are pure, 100% 21st Century Wilson, man - but there's more of an overt updating and refreshing of classic 70s prog stylings here than on Wilson's work with Porcupine Tree. Overall, a very satisfying double album capturing some great performances, even if it isn't quite as groundbreaking, revolutionary, or outright classic as Porcupine Tree's greatest accomplishments.
Warthur | 4/5 |
