3 stars Well you could also erase an half star at least, by regarding of a few genial works of the past,but it should be a mistake to compare it to their early albums, the most famous ones, whose spirit was completely different...moreover in some circumstances the repetition of the dissonances and the same harmonic solutions at the guitar as well, make me think that's a boring and tepid work too;nevertheless some interesting music features are hidden behind the corner and this new effort is the attempt by Fripp to make his old style emerge from the modern style of art rock, passing through a re-examination of the same dissonant passages of the early 70's period, but in a modern key.He likes to use the samplings and his usual never ending "sixth-tonal" scales, but at the end this sound is the typical "Crimsonian" style and that's a good idea!!

Make your own choice!!
