4 stars The first King Crimson album I ever heard was this one and I was intrigued. I was surprised that in 1981, people could make music of this magnitude except for Rush. In the era of New Wave and big hair, I thought this was a ballsy move to release an album like this during that time but that was before I really knew who King Crimson was. Start to finish, I think this is the most consistent and tight album of KC's career. Elephant Talk is a great opener that has single potential. Frame by Frame opening few seconds always get stuck in my head it has a real groove aspect to it in a weird way. The Sheltering Sky may be the best song on the album that creates such a mood that could make you feel amazingly awkward or creepily satisfied. Thela Hun Ginjeet tells a great story that almost could have gotten Belew in trouble. Overall, this is a different band even though it has the name King Crimson it is vastly different from Red almost 7 years ago. 4 and a half stars. Highlights: Elephant Talk, Frame by Frame, Indiscipline, Thela Hun Ginjeet, The Sheltering Sky and Discipline.
