4 stars this is another amazing effort on the part of crimson! Picture of a city (though similar to schizoid man) is a jazzy, menace of a song! Heavy distortion and sinister saxes power this song. Greg lakes vocal also add menace to the song. Next, cadence and cascade has some of the most beautiful vocals i've ever heard. After that is the mellotron drenched title track, reminiscent of epitaph. Next comes catfood, which is a little weird and out of place, but amusing nonetheless. After that comes one of my favorite songs of all time (I have really crazy musical taste), the devils triangle: a. mesday morn-slowly building menace of militaristic drumming and mellotron. Soon to come is b. hand of sceiron-a louder continuation of the intro adding musical layers of madness to make you quiver! Soon, the storm calmes, but your ship's equipment is broken! Your at the mercy of poseidon now! Next, out of the silence comes c. garden of worm-this the cacaphonic conclusion to this horror. Really cool basswork and some crazy sound layers in the backround! You'll even here a breif musical clip of in the court to remind one of yesterday. 4/5, but only because in the court came first. This is essential for any true crimson fan. Oh yeah, ther are also short 'peace themes' at the beggining, middle and end of the album. They help contain the concept of the album and add balance. Again, 4/5. Bravo fripp, never ceases to amaze, well, untill 1980(discipline)...
