2 stars For me, this record is an utter disappointment. The pieces are far more pop/ new wave oriented, although there are occasional moments that are more musically interesting on "Sartori in Tangier", "Waiting Man" and "Requiem". Much of the music on this record offers no challenges or surprises for the listener. As a studio venture is concerned, this represents King Crimson's smallest contribution musically. For those looking into exploring King Crimson music, this is not the place to start. With such insipid material, this gets a two star rating.
