5 stars when U're preparing to write 'bout an opera,a masterpiece,be it literature,sculpture or paintings,often u can give away to our case we talk 'bout of a musical and historical document.Where everything'started.10/10/1969 the prog rock era.IN THE COURT is a great work full of ideas,where 4 incredible musicians have created a complex and innovative opera,futuristic,apocalyptic,and lysergic scenarios.fantasy worlds,illusions,fears of the man of our time.All accompanied by a cover that reflects the spirit of the age;"THE SCREAM OF GODBER".by this Pete Sinfield has sewn twilight melodies of songs on essential texts but gothic,esoteric,epigrammatic.

After a whirlwind of emotions filled with many shades and colors,from the beginning "21th century "to "In the court",the red curtain closes with a warning against the manipulators and the oppressors:" THE YELLOW JESTER DOES NOT PLAY,BUT GENTLY PULLS THE STRINGS AND SMILES AS THE PUPPETS DANCE...IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING"
