With all the disturbances noted, I wonder if anyone else actually found humor in the image? And perhaps the "meaning" is deliberately multiple...
Sinisterer and sinisterer

While googling íKing Crimson Cyclopsí in search of a decent-sized picture of the (admittedly disturbing) image, I came across the following character in Warcraft:
íMagnus the Red (Also known as the Crimson King, the Sorcerer-King, Cyclopean Magnus or the Red Cyclops)í.
I leave it to others to make of this what they will. Or not.

How to wink one eye?
A cyclops gets no respect
and he gets no dates
Eye Wide Open
:: Posted by nungboy on June 18, 2015
I think I saw somewhere on the interweb that the 40th Anniversary release of The Power to Believe has a substantial change in one song. Apparently, due to the success of the "Cyclops" tour poster, the lovely ballad on the CD will be renamed "Eye Wide Open" and Adrian Belew is re-recording the vocals to reflect the change. (wink)

For what itís worth I think the 2015 tour poster is great and reflects the current mood, trend and music from the live cd... I really hope it getís used more on merch etc.

The whole Illuminati thing doesnít concern me.
Cyclops is just plain weird! I like the knotty Discipline logo, I Love the double trio logo, Schizoid man looks like an angry Les Dawson so heís okay but Cyclops.....nah!

Here are three comments relating to our new KC friend, the Cyclops:
1. At least his face is not extended and flabby, with a gaping hole in the right side.
2. I try to be afraid of the Cyclops but am too used to him, having been raised on 1950s science fiction movies. (I just re-watched The Atomic Submarine last night, which prompted this message.)
3. Is the Cyclops scary because he appears to be in the Illuminati? Seriously? Maybe if he was part of the IMF Iíd be scared.
Berlin guitar ensemble

Crisp, precise Technical perfection
Expression through arrangement and timing and physical positioning.
You have to be good if are you are going too break complex arpeggios and melodies into individual notes - and each guitarist in the group takes ownership of a note. Seated in a crescent shaped group the guitarists pass the phrase smoothly backwards and forwards or bouncing it back and forth. Hypnotising to watch, amazing to listen to.

Teledanís observations almost mirror my own.
With a bit of research you can see that it has had different meanings to different cultures over the years. It would be nice if someone explained what message we are supposed to receive. Iím not superstitious or a conspiracy theorist or in anyway cynical but when I first saw it I found it quite unnerving and sinister as Iíd never seen anything like it before.
Truth be told, the more I look at it, the more I donít like it. Maybe Iím not the kind of fan this crimson incarnation wants!
Birthdays and Probabilities
:: Posted by rogadaire on June 16, 2015
I was also quite struck by the co-incidence of May/June birthdays amongst KC-related folk. I recalled reading somewhere that the size of a class needed for there to be a greater than evens chance of 2 people sharing the same birthday is much lower than most people commonly imagine. So I looked this up again and it turns out that the number is in fact 23 - ie in a class size of 23 the odds of 2 people in that class having the same birthday is (very slightly) greater than the odds of no-one sharing a birthday. And this does not take into account that birthdays are not evenly spread throughout the year - apparently there tend to be more actual birthdays in May than October although both months have 31 days. When this variation is taken into account the relevant class size number comes down to 20 or 21, I believe. On a very quick calculation, I reckon there are 21 people who have played an instrument on a KC album (Iím including live overdubs!). Expanding the KC fraternity to contributors who have not necessarily played an instrument but been actively involved in other ways, such as Pete Sinfield, Richard Palmer-James and a certain Vicar character, this easily brings us to a figure of over 23 for a KC íclassí. So it would seem more likely than not that 2 members of the class have the same birthday. If so, Iíd say that the early indication is that itís probably in May! (or do the couple of near misses we know about count for nothing? Iíll leave that for a better mathematician than me to work out.....)
