5 stars One of the must-have-prog-albums of all times! With a very agressive line-up, Crimson started another round of Crimsonism in only 3 years of existence. Fripp called the fat-bassist Wetton, the agressive & technicist Bruford, the avant-gardist Cross & the lunatic Muir to record a formidable effort in the otherwise simply called avant-garde rock. Fripp and colleagues started a new way to heat the prog rock with atonal incursions into jazzy veins, hard-angular guitar riffs & disconnected percussions mixed with trully beautiful symphonic Crimson. The two parts of the title track are memorable anthems of this mid-70īs-Crimson: nut-notes into a hurricane of ferocious Fripp-Bruford interludes. Wetton also display beautiful & melancholic Crimsonism in Book of Saturday and in the epic and mellotronic Exiles. Fripp just tried to adventure himself in a groundbraking rock territory - the experimentalism: and he did it very well. He choosed the right guys, in the right place, at the right time.

AN OBLIGATORY ALBUM IN ANY SERIOUS ROCK COLLECTION.
