Oh my Lord... this is great. I know some people do consider this album to be their "sell out" point. But once again, it is a case of a band trying something new, and being labeled a sell out. This album really made me fall in love with Tony Levin again... awww with his cute little moustache... and due to Elephant Talk, I will some day own a Chapman stick... I won't play it well at all... but I will own it. It really is the first King Crimson album I've ever heard that doesn't make me want to quit the bass and become a Robert Fripp wannabe. I think because it has more of a standard time feel, Levin gets to groove more and hold together Belew and Fripps dueling guitar insanity. So is this too "New Wave" for you guys? Thoughts? Frankly, this may shape out to be one of my favorites! But then again, I've said that about ever single one of there CDs when I buy them. (Except Court of the Crimson King).
