3 stars King Crimson - 'Islands' 3.5 stars

Good album, but fails compared to the early Crimson catalogue.

What is good about this album is the string arrangements compiled with the horns to give each and every song a diverse feel. The problems that occurred dealt with drawing out some of the songs way too long, the worst being the title track. The vocals were nothing to brag about either, they just seemed so lifeless. I didn't find any of the songs to be memorable besides the opening number, but none of them were necessarily bad in any way, just average.

The fans of the band and people into prog with some strings would be interested. The casual's might not find promise in this.
