AllMusic Review by

A brilliant live recording of Robert Fripp's League of Crafty Guitarists. From King Crimson covers and Fripp-written exercises (the several "Circulation" tracks, that turn the assembled group into a web of interconnected notes) to Bach preludes and a cover of "Wabash Cannonball," the group is incredibly sharp, disciplined, and the total opposite of loose. The title track is all that and more: an unstoppable machine rushing headlong at the listener. Probably one of the best League recordings, this is almost a final statement on the ideas and techniques of Fripp's Guitar Craft workshops (though they continue to this day). You will soon forget these are acoustic guitars: it's pure steel.
