A concept album, eh? Never thought of it in those terms... :?

Well I think this would be a brilliant question to ask Mr. Belew over at his place!

That is, if he's done regaling us with tales of his underoos.

It was an important question that needed to be asked. Does anyone really care about the music? I certainly don't! :D

Same here. In fact, I have to say evktalo's comment is one of the most insightful statements regarding that album I've ever come across. It really is an album of two personas. If they had put Nuages on Side Two and Dig Me on Side One, the disparity would be even more obvious.
Walking out's just another metaphor.

Well wasn't the two sides called "This Side" and "That Side" or something, rather than side one and two. I never owned the LP, so please correct me accordingly (as I know you pedants will do). :D

They were called the Left Side and the Right Side.

That's it. I think it relates to how the members of the band dress. Fripp and Bruford dress to the left and Levin and Belew dress to the right. See...it's all about the underwear... ;-)

That's right, and the remaster has the bonus tracks under "The Other Side".

I second Einos suggestion about a concept. I've allways thought there was some vague thread running through the album.

I kind of like both of these albums, so I'm not voting. There's a couple of traks that I never listen, but most of them I enjoy.

I think there's a couple of the most underrated crimson trakcs here. The Howler & Dig Me. They have same kind of quirky feel to them and I for one think theyre brilliant. And Ade's lyrics on Dig Me is spot on. No one WOULD write a better song about a car carcas :)

In an interview RF describes one side of TOAPP as accessible and the other side as inaccessable.

I think he called them "accessible" and "excessive".

I think.
