4 stars 01. Peace - The Beginning Not because they do not have like a song being the singer Greg Lake, only his voice and a guitar in the end, just to start the game.

02. Pictures Of A City including 42nd At Treadmill A hit here that the blows make a strange weight to everything, some parts fast and slow at the same time. At the riff is a powerful voice with the voice of Lake, but the coolest are the same sax. Madness ... a lot of guitar and madness below, Greg is in the low key but serious Peter Giles saw here is a hit, he plays too. After a lot of madness, a party with a low front takes care of things. Much improvisation as is typical of King Crimson, this is the nature of them.

03. Cadence And Cascade Gordon Haskell premiere of the voice in the next disc it would be more present since Greg joined Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer mount for the E, L & P. A very beautiful ballad with guitar and piano in the foreground together. Very nice by the way. The chorus is even more beautiful, so with a single keyboard, nice and smooth.

04. In The Wake Of Poseidon including Libra's Theme Returning to the sound of the same faces, a body means accident, bold battery, and then returns to the theme calmer scene, with the voice of Lake always perfect. This song is easy, but it has many different parts and I quite like the arrangement of it. The vocal line is also a charm, is pretty cool stuff means coral. I love it!

05. Peace - The Theme A theme of calm and beautiful guitar. Just to enjoy the calm of things.

06. Cat Food Greg Lake this well here. Rock even more. I think that's a bit E, L & P, without wanting to compare. It has a footprint and the jazz piano and sometimes very strange. In the very final piano.

07. The Devil's Triangle a) Mesday Morn b) Hand Of Sceiron c) Garden Of Worm This is the epic of the disc. Begins (like many other sounds) very low and grows until you reach the apex of music. Many keyboards and everything a martial tone. Some sounds of 'wind' and everything. Much psicodelia with touches of jazz, rock and reminded me very Abbadon's Bolero disk Trilogy of E, L & P. More at the end is the bottom of each well and relied on 'sounds' from several keyboards and also some short stretches of the vocalization of In The Wake Of Poseidon. I could not identify very well what are the 3 shares so ...

08. Peace - An End To finish any better than the voice of Lake exactly as in track 1, a melody of the guitar tracks in part two of the band, would best way to end a disc.

Many say the disc is weaker because of King Crimson were in transition, changing the training, staff falling out. But still I think they did a very good job.
