I liked Epitaph more. I could always give Poseidon another spin though. I don't know that one quite as well.

Never been a huge fan of Epitaph, although there is plenty of good music hiding underneath the somewhat over emotional vocals, that sadly doesn't go down well with me. Poseidon I love.

This poll is giving me deja vu.  Anyway, Wake for me.

Epitaph should be played to every secondary school child as an example of the heights that music can reach.

Both are good musically, but "Epitaph" has better lyrics.

Epitaph,easily. One of my favourite King Crmson songs... if not my very favourite. Actually, among my very favourite prog songs. And perhaps the most emotional.

Posiedon is better. Epitaph is a touch outdated sounding.

Epitaph and In The Wake of Poseidon are the two songs I like most on their 1st two albums, They are kinda similar like 21st Century Schizoid Man & Pictures of A City,..

But yeah, I don't think I can vote on this one.

That's always been the charm of some of the tracks on this album (I Talk to the Wind is another one), as an album making reference to the king's court should :-)

I have found that many songs that sounded outdated at the first listens, if i happen to like tham and listen to them regularly, later on I just kind find what is it that made them sound outdated at the beginning.

Epitaph - (though) I fear tomorrow I'll be crying ...

Love them both, but voted for Epitaph as it kinda created the template Poseidon was later built from.

I like Epitaph more than Poseidon, but I think that King Crimson's second album is better than their first overall.   " Shocked "

I've grown bored with both songs, but I'm much much less bored with Epitaph.

I think Poseidon works better as an album, but I like most of the individual songs on Court more
