5 stars If your able to put out a debut album this complete, this musically exceptional, this important to the course of rock music then you've done something special. While this album is not the first prog album, Zappa, Procol, the Moodies, and the Nice all came before, but this is the album, this is the group that cause progressive rock to explode out and consume the rock world. Some will quibble about the perfection of this album, pointing to the 10 minutes of noodling that closes out Moonchild as a blunder, but everything surrounding this more than makes up for this hiccup (I agree, this is a minor hiccup). How about a track by track assessment: 21st Century Schizoid Man Mirrors - sublime I Talk to the Wind - supreme Epitaph - superb Moonchild - for 3 minutes ideal, 9 minute derailment which is more than forgivable The Court of the Crimson King - immaculate ^ I looked up synonyms for perfect A 6 star album that will have to settle for 5.
