Comments: Really a King Crimson offshoot band, UK's first album is not
as gloomy or dark as the mid seventies Crimson albums. Jobson's fast 
paced keys and electric violin may be what was missing from the mid
seventies Crimson, although sometimes they may be too much.
Thankfully, Bill Bruford was still using a real drum kit and not that electric
stuff at this point and his drumming is as good as ever. (***)
