I haven't heard Dificil Equilibrio'sprevious two albums. As for the band's third release, "Trayecto", this is another excellent example of a real clone album. At last, it is King Crimson's turn to be cloned. Musically, the album is not unlike those King Crimson released in the '80s. Furthermore, it sounds like the logical development of the style, which were presented on "Three of a Perfect Pair". When listening to "Trayecto", I got the impression that Fripp & Co, who, as you well know, are the most 'reincarnationable' band in the world, are able to marvelously materialize in the form of another band as well. The only exception here is a Spanish Adrian Belew's 'unwillingness' to sing, i.e. this is an all-instrumental output. Anyway, if you like "Somewhere But Yesterday" by Xitizen Cain and the other real clone albums (as I do), you will be pleased with "Trayecto". The Museum of Musical Clones enlarges slowly yet rather regularly. My vision of such distinctly different things as "clone" and "imitation" is part of this review.
