5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the darkest music that you will ever hear, 29 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: In The Wake Of Poseidon - 30th Anniversary Edition (Audio CD)
This is a mezmerisingly powerful and dark album. There are similarities to the groups debut album, but "In The Wake Of Poseidon" also points towards the more discordant sounds that would appear on King Crimson's next few albums. "Pictures Of A City" is "21st Century Schizoid Man" part two but uses more extreme dynamics. "Cadence and Cascade" which features the vocals of Gordon Haskell (the remainder of the album features Greg Lake just before he jumped ship to form ELP) in a delicate jazzy piece. The mellotrons are whipped out in their full glory on the title track. "Cat Food" features mad piano playing courtesy of jazz genius Keith Tippett (check out his solo stuff - it is truly off the wall and amazing!). But for me its the instrumental suite that finishes off the album with its quotations from Holsts, "Mars, Bringer Of War" that shows the true character of this dark and complex prog rock classic. At one point it sounds like someone is digging in the garden!
