4 stars This album is not less great than any other King Crimson album of their symphonic era. Like many albums released as LP in seventies, it has two thematic parts: on the first side we have four, not that much long songs, and not so good as epic called "Lizard" from other part of an album. Whole album is in jazz mood, and Lizard is great symphony. I do not find first three songs too much interesting, but I still like these tracks, as these are not quite bad done. "Lady of the Dancing Water" is anyway very atmospheric and picturesque song, pure joy for ears, with nice acoustic guitar and great flute. One can almost see Lady of the Dancing water, while closing eyes; it took me to its own lyrical and fantasy world. "Lizard" has got everything to be an excellent symphony, several parts that fit together good, and it gets hard to me to explain how it sounds like, all I can write is that it is artistically high water mark, I felt like reading meaningful book and having some nice dreams. This song is classical museum piece; it is worth listening for years.
