4 stars This is what could be considered King Crimson's _Nursery Cryme_(as per Genesis). Not the greatest sounding album for production values. It also sounds a little disjointed in places or phoned in(notice all the guests which appear). Definitely not a band effort but more or less a project. _The Devil's Triangle_ has to be the most sinister sounding track in prog history where the mellotron is used in a most gloomy fashion. Best heard before a massive thunderstorm. It's the lesser to _In The Court Of The Crimson King_, but it's still a 4 star effort. In the prog.rock world, I can't think of a King Crimson album that could muster up anything less than 4 stars out of 5...and _In The Wake Of Poseiden_ is no different. King Crimson always has something important to say artistically. A great companion album to IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING.
Gooner | 4/5 |
