3 stars What a strange album. In the Wake of Poseidon often gets accused of being a clone of the groups first outing. I think that, other than the title, that that is very untrue. In fact I don't think it's like anything I've ever heard. Very unique, but full of imperfections. The best songs are "Pictures of a City" "Cadance and Cascade" and the title track. The others are the three titled "Peace" which are mostly just segues, and intro/outro material. Cat Food and The Devils Triangle are strange and uneven songs. Cat Food is a groovy little jam that really makes no sense and is just quite silly, but enjoyable all the same. The Devils Triangle is one of those instrumentals where NOTHING at all happens and it brings the album down a bit. Giles Fripp and crew all play there instruments in top form here as usual, but I'd still call this album the weakest of early Crimson. So, good but not essential.
