4 stars Ah, this is my favorite ADRIAN BELEW solo recording so far! He did this at home, and the result is a chaotic rapid fire of ideas bursting mercilessly towards the listener. Some of them grow as produced, ca. four minute songs, and the rest are presented as one minute rough sketches. There's a few beautiful pieces typical to Adrian included here, but I guess this CD is mostly for the fans of the experimental Adrian.

I haven't paid much attention to the lyrics, but I noticed these words from the first song: "The golden days of bow and drum", and after that "...the sound of lark". Does the "bow" stand for Cross, "drum" for Muir (or Bill), and "lark" for Larks' Tongues in Aspic? Well, perhaps not.
