3 stars This album was the first release by the "projeKcts" a smaller grouping taken from the "double trio" King Crimson lineup. This lineup was Robert Fripp on guitar, Trey Gunn on touch guitar and guitar synth, and Adrian Belew on v-drums, basically a set of synth pads set up in drum kit style. The songs are all inprovised jams, built around the v-drums, which, in most cases, had bass tones programmed into the kick drum, and a few other synth patches set to trigger from from the pads, as well as traditional drum sounds.

The music is nothing like King Crimson. Mostly, because of the synth patched used by Fripp and Gunn (mostly piano, horns and other keyboard sounds), the album has sort of an acid jazz feel to it. Belew's drumming is simplistic, but because os the synth patches stays somewhat interesting. Fripp and Gunn tend to not break out into wild soloing, but remain laid back and tasteful.

What remains is a fair album of instrumental background music. This is a fine recording to play at a gathering (party, barbecue, whatever). The music will not overwhelm, but might cause guests to occasionally perk up and ask what they are listening to.

Evolver | 3/5 |
