Poor man Dark Side??? This album is far more experimental!
And it succeeds at being like that. I consider all the songs to be good, pretty unique disc

This album twists and writhes like a snake, from orchestral moments, into jazz then to a hard rock section then back to classical and on to jazz...

The vocals aren't the best but they do work in the album as a whole. I often start my Sunday morning vinyl session with this one as a warm up!

The main selling point of this album seems to me to be the rhythm section, which holds this all together. Some tracks meander a little too much (the first track loses all its energy with the virtually silent violin part) and don't have that much body to them. The wordless vocals on Easy Money kinda annoy me too. Not a perfect album by a long way for me.

Interesting and challenging album from King Crimson. It really grows on you and some of the vocal tracks sound uncannily like Pink Floyd. Strong LP.

A beautiful album. Jamie Muir adds a very nice touch. very melodic. Bass drives the album.

It is a solid Crimson's album!
The lead vocals and the drummer's momentary disconnections from the rest of the band are the weak points of this album. But the power and groove of the bass, the little frippian melodies and the very stimulating tempo games do make a statement for this record.

Absolutely beautiful album, the instrumental portion is astounding. My second favorite album produced by King Crimson after In the Court of the Crimson King.

From nitomano
Un poco más experimental pero aún así es mi tercer disco favorito de la banda solo detrás de In The Court Of The Crimson King y Red
