"Cirkus" starts out nicely enough with a jingling piano it starts out but suddenly bursts into a Mellotron lead evil-sounding theme. Guitarist Robert Fripp evocates incredible classical style guitar playing; he spreads his nylon stringed noise throughout the song. The freaky atmosphere, intense instrumental interplay, creepy vocals, image laden lyrics, and Andy McCulloch’s fantastic drumwork combine to make this one of my favorites. And since I just mentioned him: Andy McCulloch. Probably the most underrated drummer Crimson ever had. His jazzy, precise, yet (relatively) subtle style fits the music like a glove, and never fails to impress me.
