Background: Released in 1982, Beat was the ninth studio album by King Crimson.

The album reached #39 on the UK charts and #52 on the U.S. charts. gave Beat a 4 star review:

Beat is not as good as its predecessor (1981’s Discipline), but it’s not too shabby, either. The ’80s version of King Crimson (Robert Fripp, guitar; Adrian Belew, vocals/guitar; Tony Levin, bass; and Bill Bruford, drums) retains the then-modern new wave sound introduced on Discipline. …. With lots of different guitar textures, bass explorations, and uncommon drum rhythms present, King Crimson’s Beat will automatically appeal to other musicians. But since they’re fantastic songwriters as well, you don’t have to be a virtuoso to feel the passion of their music.
