This is a 1977 British Polydor pressing with quiet vinyl and truly powerful sound.  I don't see a ton of clean UK Crimson originals around (and I don't even bother with the domestic ones) so I'm always willing to take a chance on the '70s Polydor versions, which can be quite impressive when you get a good one.  And I was very pleased when I dropped the needle on this one and heard strong, dynamic sound. So much of the fun with an album like this is the way the music can go from quiet to loud in a hurry, and it really does take a good copy to fully capture those moments. I'd imagine there's a better sounding original out there somewhere, but I'd be more than happy to spend my prog time getting knocked out by a copy like this!

4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "This lineup quickly established itself as a powerful performing unit, working in a more purely experimental, less jazz-oriented vein..." 


Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG (light creases, sticker shadow, price tag residue - still solid)
