5 stars Seminal progressive rock art? Under debate. Masterpiece of modern art? Absolutely.

This album opens King Crimson's career with audacity and power. You see the aggressive highs of 21st Century Schizoid Man and the flowing lows of I Talk to the Wind. You see the amazing complexity of their music in Court and their powerful lyrics in Epitaph. You also see the wankiness characteristic of later acts in Moonchild. My complaint is the same as everyone else's; Moonchild could have stopped at 2 minutes. Other than that, the album is flawless.
