3 stars Here is my review of In the Wake of Poseidon by King Crimson. Oddly enough I think this specific record is the one that has interested me the most(aside from Larks Tongues). You guys are gonna kill me I bet because I personally think its better than In The Court but not by a long shot.

Here is the lowdown

Peace-A Beginning- Interesting little vocal track, good listening 8/10

Pictures Of A City- The best piece on here, yes it seems like a variation of 21st Century Schizoid Man but it's still very crazy and very good 10/10

Cadence And Cascade- Another stellar piece might remind one of I Talk To The Wind but I happen to like it a little more-10/10

In The Wake-The song is good but again a direct copy of Epitaph I feel. 8/10

Peace- A Theme . Good little guitar piece from Fripp nothing too good or too bad. 8/10

Cat Food- Doesn't do much for me 6/10

The Devil's Triangle- Terrible utterly terrible, another experimentation gone wrong. 4/10

Peace -An End- I think this is interesting, it has elements of Peace A Beginning and A Theme and it's tied together 10/10

In total 64/80

which constitutes out of 8/10 which is 4/5. On second thought this is pretty much the same thing as In the Court .3 stars Peace out!!!
