3 stars King Crimson is one of my beloved band. Their debut album is all time prog classic. But this, second one, isn't. In fact, they continued with ideas and music from their debut there, but all this work just looks as "ITCKC -II". And as in movie market, every "Rambo -II" is not so good, as original.

Music isn't bad at all, it's more just lack of fresh ideas. Using the same sounds and same constructions, it wasn't easy to produce original album. Another difference - this,second KC album, isn't far as energetic as their debut. Much more mellow, even romantic, it missed part of KC magic.

In my KC list this albums is placed somewhere in the middle. I prefer more heavy and experimental side of KC.

Let say 3,45...
