5 stars In the beginning...

I do believe this is truly the first prog-rock album. In the late 60's, progressive ideas were in the air, In The Court Of The Crimson King made them evolve in a new music movement. Even though this is a debut album, the musicians showed amazing ability and the tunes are very mellow. Robert Fripp's magnificent guitar, Greg Lake sang like he rarely did again later, Pete Sinfield lyrics gave big contribution to make this record a wonderful one. Ian McDonald's super-symphonic keyboards, how can I forget to mention? ...and also the jazzy drumming by Michael Giles... Let me tell you one thing; This is truly a masterpiece!!! How can you say it isn't? However it's a matter of taste...
