Album Review

This is a bit of a misleading title. While this disc certainly does feature the short-lived prog supergroup U.K. (bassist John Wetton, drummer Bill Bruford, violinist and keyboardist Eddie Jobson, and guitarist Allan Holdsworth) on their American tour, it also includes tracks from Wetton's other group, the totally horrid Akustika from the same decade.

The music is intense, knotty, and full of key and tempo changes, and features brilliant and gifted musicians interacting basically egolessly — no mean feat with this lot. The sound quality is excellent to boot.
