5 stars Incredible piece of music here, In the Court of the Crimson King really opened the doors to the world of Progressive Rock for me, just like it has done for so many others. Fripp's demented guitar playing on "21st Century Schizoid Man" has almost brought a tear to my eye on a few occasions, because it really is brilliant. "I Talk to the Wind" is a complete opposite of the opening track, and just soars with beauty. "Epitaph" is one of the King's most powerful songs. One cannot deny Greg Lake's vocal abilities here. "Moonchild" is an interesting tune that's filled with a few surprises. The song is not as bad as some claim it to be. The finale, "The Court of the Crimson King" is an absolute powerhouse, and a great way to end this fine milestone in the world of Progressive rock.
