This is another crazy album by King Crimson, heavy and muddy. They are starting to become a little unpredictable at this point putting out a decent one mixed with a bunch of weak ones. This one is another weak one compared to 'Thrak'. This album did produce some gems that rose above the previous work though. 'Frakctured' is a reworking of the one from 'Starless and Bible Black' and it is obviously weaker, but still good. The interplay between Fripp and Belew is just ridiculous on this one and the same for 'Larks.Part IV' which is better then Part III. The best track on here is not a King Crimson track, but that of ProjeKct X.

If you liked Thrak, this one can be bought as well, but it just isn't as good. 'Prozack Blues' has to be one of the worst songs ever created by this band. There are a lot of cautions to take on this one, be cautious!
