Prog Reviewer
3 stars In The Wake of Poseidon is a great follow up album to King Crimson's genre defining debut, but I honestly have always thought this album sounded a bit dry. The tracks here are solid, but some of the tracks are kind of redundant. "Pictures of a City" simply sounds like a slowed down version of "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Devil's Triangle" is a purposeless march, "In The Wake of Poseidon" sounds like a slightly altered version of "Epitaph", but overall the songs are great sounding. "Cadence and Cascade" is a beautiful acoustic ballad and "Cat Food" is a classic King Crimson jazz jam.

This is a fine album, but doesn't quite live up the the fantastic debut.
