5 stars KING CRIMSON - LIZARD Let's begin!

This is third album from King Crimson and it is a different one. I read somewhere that this is as close as they get to their jazz influences. And it is true. But how it sounds? Well, can you imagine King Crimson with Miles Davis's touch? Sketches of Spain inside of the In The Wake of the Poseidon?

CIRKUS: This is second song I have heard from KC (first being 21 century) and it's masterpiece. From the beginning to end it's beautiful. I personally think this is Fripp's first true contribution to the overall sound with his acoustic eccentric lines. 5 Indoor games & Happy family: Two songs like one! Bizarre, grotesque and not for everyone. I personally love them but I can why someone have a problem with them. Must be heard to judge. 4.5

Lady of the dancing water: Beautiful ballad. Nothing more to say there. Can be better maybe? 4

Lizard: STUNING! KC epic! Can you imagine it? Can you imagine group improvisation (something like free jazz but all in the circle of progressive rock) the everything fits right in the spot and everything is disharmonic and in the same time beautiful? Well, that's it. Masterpiece. 5 5 stars. Essential.
