"The Sheltering Sky" - one of the greatest pieces of music, 16 Sep 2006
King Crimson's first album after the reunion - a fascinating work influenced by Talking Heads and Minimal Music. But for me, this disc is also noteworthy for containing one of the greatest pieces of music ever written: The hypnotic "The Sheltering Sky", a much more fascinating and congenial hommage to Paul Bowles than The Police's "Tea in the Sahara". This track alone is worth the whole disc!
