1 stars King Crimson at their worst...

The fact that Crimson lost their spark is visible through the first song on this album, and no radical changes comes with the next tracks. "Beat" really tested my patience, which I overcame, and it finally offered a track worth listening to, the last one "Requiem". I dont see how this is the work of the same band that created "Red", "Islands", "In The Court..." etc.

If you have started to King Crimson music with this album and decided not to continue, give them another chance with their early works. One of the greatest bands ever, but still, a terrible effort.
