5 stars Five stars of course. In the Court of the Crimson King is a really masterpiece. The first track has a very impressive strength. "I talk to the wind" is an amzing ballad that takes you away. Epitaph makes you feel in a very sad mood. Moonchild is a fantastic song follow by psicodelic jazz. The final track is very strong again and with psicodlelic views that takes you away in the abism of thoughtful feelings. After listening many times since the late seventies, I did not get tired yet of the amazing compositions inside this album. I have been always amazed how, at that moment, so young people was able to do such ecstasic compositions. The flute, the drums, melotron everything is very well played in this album. This album has the capability of exposing many different feelings and moods, but it is always serious. This album is the one that one cannot regret listen to many, many times. Not going without saying that I think there is a correlation beteween the music ant the art work. I did not find any reference on the site to this. The art work of the schizoid is fabolous. A pity that who did died a 21.
