5 stars Almost the same band from the previous effort, almost the same magnificent work of the previous effort. In the Wake... works as a mirror of In the Court, but fails in its attempt to progress into a new decade & recording format. Fortunately, all elements of early symphonic Crimson are here, from the GIANT & fat mellotron to the deeply sad vocals & lyrics by the intelectualized double-double Lake/Sinfield. The content of this record is extremely powerfull, altough lacking some news, isnīt it?

From the hard-freaky Pictures of a City to the collossal title track, Fripp and colleagues develop a strong piece of art fullfiled with decent and extremely contemporary recording skills and techiniques.

The news? Cat Food & Devilīs Triangle. Beautiful in theyīre excellence, ranging rom the odd to the evil, these tracks shaped the Crimson that was just in order to born after this line-up disbanded.
