5 stars Last essential release for King Crimson is nearly a Masterpiece by the trio ( Fripp , Wetton & Brufford ) . Apparently , David Cross had his finale share before leaving the team . Still , in my humble opinion this album is a twin with In the court of CK , in many ways these two releases are similar . Wetton 's vocal is dominating on all tracks specially Fallen Angel , as well as fripp's touch of various strings , also the drumming kit of brufford . Violin ,oboe & saxsophones are matching with the idea of the lyrics & concept of the tracks in general , and makes you feel reliefed . This album is one unit following one concept and tracks cannot be separetely reviewed . Best two tracks of this excellent album ( Starless & Fallen Angel ) gives you back the feeling that KC moved a step backward to create a twin to In the Court of Crimson King , just after the experimental Masterpiece of progressive Lark's Tongues in Aspic . Proudly from my behalf a 5 Super Stars to this amazing Work in 1974 . Essential to all proggers by all means ......Tracks Toni ........
