4 stars A bit of a strange and obscure atmosphere, is this the album they almost forgot rockīnīroll; I guess so, in favor of what? Jazz and experimental music. Guitar's mastermind R. Fripp sounds acoustic and very complex, what is great; there are lot of air instruments and good use of melotron and keyboards. King Crimson is not a symphonic band like many other their contemporaries, their experimental approach make them very hard listening, the high point is the beautiful song "Lizard" sung by legendary Jon Anderson. A good record but a bit boring by the lack of rockīnīroll energy in favor of some intricate and beautiful passages.
Rafael In Rio | 4/5 |
