3 stars A beginning Ok, a short, sung 49 seconds intro. No rating here. Pictures of a city 3.5 Based on 21st century schizoid man, but inferior in melody and invention (no great riffs, no furious saxes). The playing is fine, especially Frippīs, but thatīs all about it. Cadence and cascade 3 A lightweight, poppy ballad with flute and acoustic guitar. The melody is "just" okay. In the wake of Poseidon 3.5 Even more of a rip off, this time of in Court of the Crimson king. Good, but obviously derivated Peace (a theme) another short segment, this timeinstrumental, with somen dreamy acoustic guitar playing- The cat food 5 A marvelous jazzy number, with great bassplaying and piano playing similar to Keith Emerson. Nice vocals as well, again courtesy by Greg Lake. Fine solo by Robert Fripp, too. Also, the usual, "weird" coda is present. The devilīs triangle. 1 A boring, instrumental mess driven by mellotron and keybards. Some nice passages here and there, but overall nothing to write home about. Peace- an end This time, the excerpt features acoustic guitar as well as delicate vocals from Greg Lake.

Rating (The "Peace" segments are merged into the first rating): 2.5+3.5+3+3.5+5+1=18.5:6= 3 stars

GOOD. BUT NON-ESSENTIAL
