3 stars While I enjoy KC the most in their early years, I have found them to be sometimes hit and miss in their later incarnations- the middle years of new-wave Crimson of Beat and Discipline intrigued me, but it tended to get repititive fast. THis incarnation is more enjoyable. OK- first is "Prozac Blues". Ouch. Next..."The Construction of Light I and II" feature very interesting interplay of the different instruments and are both solid. "Into the Frying Pan" and "The WOrld's my..." are both good prog-rock songs. The 3 parts of "Larks Tongue" are so so for me but they get better as they go on leading into "Coda: I Have a Dream". THe Project x tune doesn't really grab me much. Afterall is compiled, this album is close to a 4 but jsut doesn't substain my interest in many parts so I will have to settle for a 3 1/2 (3 star) rating.
