AllMusic Review by

Dinosaur is a five-track EP, which will be of interest only to the most extreme King Crimson fanatics, looking to buy just about anything with the King Crimson name on it. Granted, it did serve a purpose for a short while; it contained three tracks ("Cloudscape," "Elephant Talk," and "Red") that would later appear on the concert disc B'Boom. But with the release of the aforementioned album, there's nothing on the Dinosaur EP that you cannot find elsewhere on Crimson albums still in print. There's no point in shelling out the cash for an edited version of the title track, since the full-length version is available on the Thrak album, and is far superior to the edit. You'll also find the instrumental Vrooom here, but again, it can be found on Thrak. In a nutshell, the Dinosaur EP became worthless with the release of B'Boom.
