3 stars Let me put this straight. I think Robert Fripp and his colleagues are incapable of bad music as such. Anything Fripp is involved in, is likely to be elaborate, intriguing, interesting. But nothing that followed In the Court of The Crimson King is anything at all to do with King Crimson. That band lived and died on that album. The label was kept to help future sales of Fripp and his projects, but it was sod all to do with Crimson, it was King in name only.

It was such a shame that having established something as wonderful as that album, the band chose to disintegrate and leave us a legacy of promise that can never be fulfilled. This album here is interesting, esoteric, but vague, indecisive, and with a total lack of former majesty. There but for a nail, a Kingdom was lost.
