3 stars Trying to followup the brilliant IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING may have been the hardest job in the history of Progressive Music. While IN THE WAKE OF POSEIDON does not live up to it's elder brother, it is not a failure either. WIth the title, the mood, the lyrics, and the mellotron, this bears a striking resemblence to it's predecessor, however, I get bored really fast listening to this album. It does not really have any strong, memorable tracks . Nothing stands out for me here, and some tracks are just not good- the title track is in my mind, here. I also much prefer Lake over Haskell vocally. Overall, not a King Crimson release that I listen to much anymore. But still a solid 3 star album.
