4 stars In sports, they have this thing called sophomore slump. Basically, it means that after a great rookie season, an athlete chokes at their second outing because the pressure is too high. Everybody wants to find a way to have a great second season, even if you don't match the first year stats. The problem is you have to find a way to do so. In the cae of King Crimson, they found a way: do an album extremeley similar to their first one. In The Wake Of Poseidon finds a band full of internal feuds, members leaving, member coming aboard, member takign a higher role. It this mess Robert Fripp leads the way. Every song on this album is great, though never as groundbreaking as its predecessor, In The Court Of the Crimson King. Mostly everything is similar, but one thing is better than on the first album: the drum playing from Mike Giles. As good and mixed as he was on the first one, Giles finds a way to get better here, more subtle and he is just on. It showed where the band would have gone if it stayed intact. A great recommended album. 4/5
