2 stars Like many before me, I find this to be King Crimson's weakest album. As much as I was bored by the new sound of KC in Discipline, this took it farther down to my taste. This seems to be the only period of KC for me that seems dated. Very 80's-new wavish, is my feeling. I prefer The Talking Heads, which this greatly resembles in many ways. With the possible exception of the catchy "Waiting Man", there is little of interest here. A little prog on "Requiem" but that's about it. I can only award this 2 stars, and I think that is just because it is King Crimson. Any other band would have gotten 1 star (if that makes a weird kind of sense). Must be a soft spot.
