The ConstruKCtion of Light, by King Crimson (2000): This is a bit of a weird album. The first of this four-person version of Crim, it contains some consciously backwards-looking material (a nod to Starless and Bible Black's "Fracture" and another installment in the "Lark's Tongues in Aspic" series) with some very 21st century sounds and textures. Some of those work and some, well, are better left behind. For example, The whole V-drum thing irks me, because it sounds so synthetic (which might be the point - I'm just not a fan). On the other hand, the title track(s - why it's divided in two parts I have no idea) and Belew's lyrically driven "The World's My Oyster Soup Kitchen Floor Wax Museum" are really cool and deserving additions to the repertoire. This lineup's follow up, The Power to Believe, is better on the whole.
