2 stars Belew is Belew!

Nothing completely wrong here - you'll get everything you want and awaited for. Weird sounds (guitar synths), screams and laughter, odd melodies (are there ones?) and rhythmical lines. Take KING CRIMSON circa 81-84 and throw away Fripp - that's it. Nice and unusual music, but certainly not for everyday listenings. I ain't 80s KC-hater but you won't get much from that album. Recommended if you're Belew/KC fan.

4 stars This was the Adrian Belew album I was waiting for. Lone Rhino was okay, it had a few songs I liked, but nothing that I loved. Twang Bar King was jut too... normal. There was nothing there to show he earned the crown he proclaimed was his.

But here was the record that showed why so many truly creative artists (Zappa, Eno, Fripp, Laurie Anderson to name a few) were looking to hire Belew's talents. This album is not pop songs. It's not rock. It's a collection of songs, albeit very short even by vinyl record standards at the time, that defies description.

While I presume that most of the sounds came from Belew's guitar synth, very few of the sounds are easily identifiable as coming from a guitar.

I know this barely describes the music itself. But really, this is indescribable music.

Sorry, Ade you lose a star for only have 32 minutes of music here.

3 stars Sound exactly. Performance that only oneself manipulates method. The concept to the music of Adrian Belew might have a very original, strong part in a variety of guitar players. The music that man who competes and performed with various musicians expresses might be splendidly absorbed by the element with his originality and be expressed though was also the part where some influences were received by competing. And, his music might have influenced other musicians oppositely by the music character.

His original experimental simple element and idea without ending. And, the part of the music that he cultivated becomes a music character that Adrian Belew exactly thinks about and is expressed in this album. He is challenging the composition of the tune in which this album doesn't have the song. And, all almost musical instruments are manipulated and it is performed. It is an experimental part as the impression of the overall from the element of Rock. And, the composition of the tune including the element of ethnical might be offering the listener the area of the width of his music character. Getting rid of from the form coexists with some King Crimson though his Solo before this album had appointed the form of the band. Or, the idea is revolutionized. Or, the part of what should be of the maintenance of the band of Solo that he thinks about will be able to be guessed.

The activity after he has already announced two Solo albums at this time is a well-known fact. And, it is partial for the passage to this album. It gets rid of some markets to it. And, the point that became pursuit of the music that he should do alone. And, it is partial tried for the expression of the self based on the music character to which various elements are taken. These become private parts and are reflected in the tune strongly.

The style of the performance is refined further and is a part with the whole volume musical instruments by which he was about to express this album. It might be able to catch this album as existence of his own orchestra.

Element of various music and experimental part. And, the tune might be expressed with own root and the part of unique though the element of ethnical is given. His Solo album might be multiplied from the first stage to middle term and such an element be consistent to some degree. And, his own methodology is always carried out though the situation and music revolutionize.

The sound and the melody of the guitar of "Tango Zebra" and "Laughing Man" might be really unique. And, the processing of the phrase in "Laughing Man" might have processed the idea of the melody of "The Man In The Moon". Part of ethnical of "The Gypsy Zurna" and "Portrait Of Margaret". And, "Beach Creatures Dancing Like Cranes" will be reminiscent of the flow of some King Crimson.

His music character in the 80's and the direction were time when his root and idea were exactly sent without reserve. It changes into the music refined in the 90 further's.

5 stars This is a very fine collection. Adrian Belew has a great voice, refreshing vocal style, and excellent lyrical sense; however, here he has chosen to put together instrumental pieces. They are really good. These are much more experimental and significantly different than his other offerings. So ... (read more)
