Exclusive Japanese Limited Edition reissue of this album packaged in a miniature LP sleeve featuring a free sticker. 2006.
This 31-minute set of improvs and live sessions reunites the awesomely tight Fripp/Bruford/Belew/Levin axis with additional sonic assault from bassist Trey Gunn and percussionist Pat Mastelotto. Belew bellows three whacked-out songs ("Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream" is the keeper) and the ensemble's avant garde grit is showcased to great effect on the furious title track. --Jeff Bateman

The title track is a reworking of "Red", from a different perspective : with its coda it reaches an unbelievable intensity, but then it pales in comparison to the track "Thrak" which is the sonic equivalent of a volcano eruption. "One time" is certainly one of the most beautiful songs ever written by Belew ; "Cage" is like a strong and quick uppercut in your jaw.
The balance between sonic assault, experimental improvisation and songs is striking and makes this CD filable along the best of Crimson. Too bad the "Thrak" album did not live up to such high standards.
