3 stars A COPY NOT SO GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL

"In the Wake of Poseidon"is definitely a good album, but commits a grave error: it is a copy of its predecessor, the brilliant and fantastic "In the Court of King Crimson. " I would say that is because of lack of ideas but the truth is that most of the songs on this album already existed at the time of "In the court ...".

What can I say? Party throughout the album immediately takes us to the first, while some shows another King Crimson.

I'll start talking about the originals. "Cat food" is the first real foray into jazz in KC, which would be further explored in the next album "Lizards. " We still have the theme "Peace" in three parts and the fantastic and amazing (but too boring and tiresome) "The Devil's Triangle"(name tense), which I found to be an epic better than "Moonchild. "

And then, the "self-plagiarism":

- "Pictures of the city" reminds us of "21st century schizoid man" - "Cadence and cascade" refers to the "I talk to wind" -And the title track could be called "Epitaph Pt 2. "
