5 stars Many unbelievable albums from KC. Probably more than from any other champions league progband. Perhaps the most important progband at all. But this one ist their masterpiece! Absolutely! Although Bill Bruford isn't playing here. 'Cause on "The ConstruKction of Light" (please think about this title!) is important what is played and and how this is played and sung. Yes, 'and sung'! The offen critizised strange voices from Adrian Belew are exactly what had to take place. This is a unique construction of sound, extremly sophisticated and probably extremly rehearsed also; and then played with full verve ... stunning There will be fun, fascination and efforts for the next 10 years to really perceive and understand everything that's happening on this record. For sure the peak of KC's musical creations. Even Robert Fripp and his great bandmates couldn't keep this level. The next studio album "Power to Believe" wasn't much more than finger exercises, well, KC-finger exercises ...
