2 stars To be honest, I have never quite seen the fascination with this record. It is pretty good and enjoyable, but it has very little replay value for me. Even the one song that I really enjoy most of, the Talking Drum, has that ending with the screechy violins that is akin to someone jamming an ice pick into my forehead.

But King Crimson has always been a very hit or miss band for me; when they hit it, they connect and knock it out the park, like on records like The Power to Believe, Red and Discipline, but often times they swing and miss for me. I won't call this record a complete swing and miss, but it just always leaving me wondering, "Where is the magic?"

My opinion is that this record is for hardcore King Crimson fans only.
