Overview

A first listen, Sides might only seem to be an adequate Anthony Phillips effort. Although it boasts two bona fide King Crimson members (Giles and Collins), the first half of the album consists of wry but forgettable numbers like the pop of "Um & Aargh" and the divorce kiss-off of "Holy Deadlock." But on the much better second half of the album, Phillips shows his more orchestral side on the instrumentals "Sisters of Remindum" and "Nightmare," as well as his distinctive arpeggiated guitar style on "Magdalen." And as always, the wonderfully whimsical and punning cover art by Peter Cross is reminiscent one of what the world lost when we all switched to cramped CD covers. [A Deluxe CD/DVD set was released in 2016 and included stereo, instrumental, alternative, Surround Sound, and original mixes.]
