Yeah, Poseidon is great. Apparently I still had my rating for it at a 3.5, should have upped that to a 4 already. And there you have it, now I'm in the mood to jam some early KC albums later ;)

@Jethro: Indeed. I actually like The Devil's Triangle a lot more than Moonchild. I also think Pictures of a City is pretty much on the same level as Schizoid.

Hmm that is a little odd if you've heard most of the others.

It isn't, I think it's their worst album.



On a side note, I'm slightly unhappy with the wrongly colored version of that fantastic cover art currently featuring here.

Growing on me... Moonchild is still crap though

I definitely wouldn't say it's crap but it is a shame that the improv section in Moonchild isn't up to the standard of the improv tracks that would appear on subsequent releases (The Devil's Triangle, Fracture etc.). Even Providence is far superior to Moonchild imo, despite being the weakest song on Red.

It doesn't really tarnish the record though imo.
