King Crimson—“In the Wake of Poseidon” / 1970 LP

king crimson 1970

King Crimson’s second album…“In The Wake Of Poseidon” (1970)…was initially met with disappointment by many fans/critics.

But listening to this album with fresh ears…nearly forty years after its release…I find it inspiring and a great follow-up.

The common complaint about this album is that it is an almost song-for-song clone of the band’s debut, “In The Court Of The Crimson King.” To make things worse, the band has already begun to fragment and lineup changes had already begun before the disk was completed. However, this is still a great album.
