5 stars This album does really stand head and shoulders above his other "song" based albums before he started making soundscape music. And really unlike the first two albums this has an abstract and melancholic feel to it even though the songs are all fairly short and accessible. Fripp really shines at times and Percy Jones is prominant throughout. Phil Collins is well... Phil Collins, very professional, one of the best.

"Sky Saw" sounds so good, especially the mind bending guitar riff that comes and goes. Bass and drums are always out front as well. Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. Some viola from John Cale 3 minutes in. "Over Fire Island" opens with bass and percussion as keyboards join in. Minimilistic is the word. I like it ! "St.Elmo's Fire" has vocals and intricate sounds and is uptempo. Check out the guitar 1 1/2 minutes in. "In Dark Trees" has a rhythm that reminds me of CAN. "The Big Ship" builds to another great sounding soundscape. Quite moving. "I'll Come Running" is led by piano and drums as vocals join in singing "I'll come running to tie your shoes" over and over. Guitar is incredible before 2 minutes.

"Another Green World" is a short soundscape tune. "Sombre Reptiles" has this beat with synths. Cool sounding track. "Little Fishes" is slow moving and a little spacey. "Golden Hours" has a catchy rhythm as the vocals join in. "Becalmed" opens with spacey winds and piano. An emotional atmosphere arrives before 1 1/2 minutes. "Zawinul / Lava" has these sparse piano lines and other sounds. Very minimalistic. "Everything Merges With The Night" opens with piano, strummed guitar and bass as vocals join in. Reminds me of early FLOYD. "Spirits Drifting" is a spacey and dreamy track.

I absolutely love this album. Interesting that he sort of back peddled in my opinion with his next one "Before And After Science". I can find no fault with this one at all. It suits my tastes perfectly.
