3 stars One of the most disappointing follow-up albums in the history of music. Then again, it's not that it's a bad album as such, it's just such a let-down after the highs and promises of Crimson King. It becomes obvious that the promise is never going to be fulfilled, that the moment we had it in our fingers, it was already gone.

The loss of McDonald must be one crucial factor, through no fault of Mel Collins, a fine and much-valued musician in any circle. It's just that chemistry isn't there, despite the excellence of Giles & Fripp - anything these musicians would do couldn't help but be interesting. Just as well, considering this was as good as it ever got.
