"Peace-A Beginning", a sweet vocal/acoustic song opens and then transcends into the wild jazz infused "Pictures Of A City" where there are bridges and changes in momentum in less than eight minutes than on "In The Court's..." songs. There is a theme within this album as songs seem to alternate between calm, whimsical melodies to the urgent, almost frantic pace of some of King Crimson's best songs. This is proven again with the very pretty "Cadence And Cascade" before diving into the mellotron weighted title track, with great lyrics and the pre ELP vocals of Greg Lake. The very short "Peace-A Theme" is quickly followed by one of King Crimson's most bizarre songs (if that is possible), "Cat Food" marked with a seemingly non-sensical piano that bounces around like; well a cat running back and forth across the keys. Amazingly, this song was released as a single with "Groon" as the B-Side. It was an odd choice indeed.
"The Devil's Triangle" (Parts 1, 2 and 3) are a mesmerizing, haunting, almost fearsome trio of songs that push the edge of sanity on a mellotron with a marching drum beat. Part 1 introduces the listener to the original mood before a bridge of a computer-like foghorn pierces the song. Part 2 continues the pace with a second bridge with the simple banging of a `stick on rock'. Then all hell breaks loose on Part 3 with the tempo increasing and the occasional jazz input for emphasis and variety.Read more ›

Second-most irritating Crimson album after "Earthbound". I have nothing against the vocal tracks and the 'Peace" interludes - considered in isolation, they are all... Read morePublished on Feb. 27 2001 by AndyC
The soft section of Pictures of a City has a layering, careful pacing and texture to it, where Schizoid man is a very, very fantastic jam. Read morePublished on Sept. 29 2000 by Jose Silva Anguita
