3 stars 'Epitaph' - King Crimson (Single)

Wait... why is this called 'Epitaph' if it's trailed by one of the most groundbreaking songs of all time?

The title track 'Epitaph' itself is a good balladesque-type song with an excellently orchestrated climax. Seeing as the album these songs are coming off is a classic right off the bat, it's hard to ignore the quality of these songs. But firstly, it's quite easy to get the album itself and listen to these songs as well as three more, and secondly; the marketing (title) of this seems extremely awkward.

While all of the songs (even the extended jam on 'Moonchild' are good and intelligent) are intelligent and filled with quality, I've always found the first and last songs to be the definitive highlights. 'Epitaph' might be easier for a commercial listener to digest, but still, as far as King Crimson goes, the pursuit of a commercial listener seems a bit fargone.
