5 stars Now talk about a strong start for King Crimson. I don't know if this album marked the birth of prog rock, but it became one of the most succesful work in prog rock history and the most popular album by King Crimson. When my father bought me this album for christmas, i had no idea what the band sounded like, i wasn't disappointed.

What is interesting is that there are a lot of different moods in this album. I think the band was more experimental at that time. The agressive "21st century schizoid man" became one of the classics in the history of music. "I talk to the wind" has some relaxing flute. "Epitaph" and fan-favorite "The court of the Crimson king" have some powerful mellotrons. The only weak point of this album is "Moonchild" which has (album filler) written all over it.

For any prog rock fan, whether you are familiar with King Crimson or not.
