Just goes to show that prog, even KC fans, can get things so very wrong.
 
It just seems to me that a lot of the people who've reviewed Beat just haven't taken the time to really listen to it properly before reviewing it.
 
I'm not saying it's a 5 star album, but at 3.03 it's seriously under valued IMO

From the best to the worst

1 - KC - Beat It´s a good Album, many good songs in it
2 - Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse Of  Reason, ok album, not brilliant, not bad either
3 - Jethro Tull - Under Wraps, bad album, but the thankfully acoustic "Under Wraps #2" its a great song
4 - Genesis - Invisible Touch, bad rock prog album, good pop 80´s music and this album sounds very 80's, at least Domino presents dynamics structures
5 - ELP - In The Hot Seat, inoffensive and boring as hell
90125 - Yes - Open Your Eyes, Horrendous and only a deaf man can tolerate this album

I suppose it's understandable that people are guided in the direction of change by recording format; it's a sort of musical socialzing means. Next album should be different from the next; but clearly Bruford and Co had not finished what they had begun on Discipline and it took three albums to do this. It's not a lot really.

A similar example if Poseidon; perhaps KC then as they were had not finished their ideas which were partly finished on Poseidon. Although I would have thought Cat Food belonged on Lizard - seems to be a closer relation to that set.

I absolutely agree with you.  These three albums (Discipline, Three of a Perfect Pair, and Beat) should be viewed as a single set, as part of a single project, and not as completely separate ventures.
 
I was interested to discover that Bruford and Belew both considered Beat to be a better album than Discipline, although Fripp disagreed, which lead to a falling out during the final production phase of the album.
 
I'm with Fripp, and I agree that Discipline is the best of the three, but Beat is not too far behind

Being a big ELP fan myself, I nevertheless have to admit, that "In The Hot Seat" is most probably a bad album. It has it's moments but overall it's not even average.
While at the same time I have never understood, why Love Beach was rated so badly. Maybe it's the cover.

My best to worst ranking of these would probably be:

1) Jethro Tull - Under Wraps 
2) Genesis - Invisible Touch
3) Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason
4) King Crimson - Beat
5) Yes - Open Your Eyes
6) ELP - In the Hot Seat
