2 stars Noodling.

One of the first "ProjeKcts" to be released, this album sees Adrian Belew take over the drum stool, while Fripp mostly provides space noises, but also some solos, and Trey Gunn provides both bass and other touch-guitar (Warr guitar). The music is largely improvised, and can get fairly good in places. However, it is overly long - it goes on and on, and doesn't really ever seem to get anywhere. While I encourage (most) bands to stretch out and jam more, this album is all jam, and there are few memorable tracks here. Also, while I really like Adrian Belew's singing and guitar playing, his drumming is merely OK - definitely not in the same category as any other Crimson drummer. So, you won't be listening to the drumming. It has been almost 20 years since I picked this up, and I have only been able to listen to this the whole way through a handful of times. I listened to is again the whole way through for this review, but that will be the last time - life is just too short. So, not bad, but not at all special. I give this 5.2 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to high 2 PA stars. Only for true fans.
