4 stars The first solo album from bassist/guitarist from King Crimson. Hard to classify, the music mixes jazz, rock, ambient into instrumental and spoken/sung pieces.

The short opener "The Night Air" is a very jazzy song with Trey Gunn doing the vocals. "The Screen Door And The Flower Girl" starts with a cool "guitar" solo and continue with vocals in a Crimsonesque fashion. "Killing For London" is one of the jazz/rock mixed songs - starts with a solo again before Trey Gunn/Serpentine start to sing together. "Real Life" is a quiet instrumental - the typical darker track that can be found in the ProjeKcts. "Into The Wood" is in the same vein as the previous track, with background vocals and longer solos. "The Gift" is a beautiful soundscape - the influence of Robert Fripp's work is clearly visible on that track. "Take This Wish" is again a jazzy track - but this time a bit boring - that fades into the last song of the album, the dark instrumental "1000 Years" - another soundscape-like track.

Rating: 84/100 (very good)
