Review by Cygnus X-2
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars From the stellar debut to the sophomore slump, this album has likable qualities, but it doesn't keep up to par with Lone Rhino. Beginning with a Beatles song, from the start people can get a clue that Adrian is trying to add his flare to some ofhis favorite songs. Overall, the album has a very similar feel to Lone Rhino, which is why I cannot rate it higher, it simply doesn't have enough difference. Sure there are good songs (Ballad of the Blue Whale/Twang Bar King), but they are all so similar in sound and craft to Lone Rhino.

The Beatles song that I mentioned is in fact Help! B-Side "I'm Down". Adrian puts a very emotional vocal forward and tries to keep it up beat, but all in all it doesn't really compare to the original. It feels a bit too cheesy, with back-up singers and some very simplistic playing from everyone. The next song, though, makes up for that. I Wonder has some meaty chords and some great guitar frills and runs, and some great sax to back it up. It certainly still has the atmosphere from I'm Down, up-beat to the maximum. Life without a Cage features some great riffing and structure, some great vocals and an awesome saxophone line that's up there with the rest of them. Other tracks worth mentioning are Twang Bar King, which features some great lyrics and vocals from Belew, some wild guitar work, and a very overall fun atmosphere. Ballad for a Blue Whale is an all guitar instrumental, which features some great synth textures and some great work from the guitar.

Overall, this is a good album in it's own right, but it is more of a sequel to Lone Rhino than another original work. While his approach to the music is original, the material isn't. 3/5

Review by Kazuhiro
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars "Lone Rhino", the set of the former work, and the method of risk and the overall catching might be suitable for this album. The idea that he cultivated with David Bowie and Talking Heads is satisfactorily demonstrated with his initial work. Of course, his creation is not few the fan that feels puzzled in the directionality of KC in the 80's because it was brought in to KC with a few ideas either.

However, the sense of Belew might already have been established by his character, knowledge, and technology. His existence worked to some degree in the band of Zappa. And, those flows are guessed to have expanded the width of the creation in the Solo album because it is digested surely. His personal creativity and the music character appeared remarkably in the work at this time. However, the idea of Talking Heads and the influence in KC might be able to be found a little.

The drum player is put out, and it is accompanied and he has put out the form of the band to belonging exclusively forward further in this album in "Lone Rhino" of the former work though he played the drum. This produced album makes almost the same musician as the former work participate and if directionality and the composition are considered, might be a work that should think as a pair.

As for "I Wonder" and "Another Time", etc. with an active impression his taste is satisfactorily demonstrated. And, the idea from which the melody of "The Man In Moon" of the former work is invented by reversely rotating the tape is adopted and the idea shown in "She Is Not Dead" is finished up in a new tune.

It will be able to know depth and the challenge of his music by listening to an initial work if it knows the root of his character and music in the upcoming album though the work of Inst is adopted.
