3 stars The second album from King Crimson. An album pretty similar to their debut.

Eclectic is the first word that springs to mind. An eclectic development of what The Beatles did on Revolver and Sgt Pepper. Cat Food for example is not far away from the Beatles formula. The Devil's Triangle is though much more like the avant garde scene at that time. It also has what I regard as one of King Crimson's signature cards: Robert Fripp's mellotron. The same also goes for the title track with the rich mellotron sound. Greg Lake's vocals are excellent on this album and the rest of the band also does a very good job here. This album is a bit of a mixed bag with not so good stuff and some very good stuff. It is not in the same class as the debut and it is also threading water a bit too much for my liking. This album is not one of their best albums, I am afraid.
