5 stars What hasn't already been said? Well, I'll tell you that Michael Giles is a very skilled drummer. This album has drums that are very unique and stand out allot of the time. Especially on Court of the Crimson King. The Talents of Ian Mcdonald are present throughout the entire album as well. He shines on I Talk to the Wind. That song has one of the best performances of a woodwind in all of progressive rock. The lyrics of sinfield set the tone for the album. This is one of those cds you forgive for the "preteniousness". Fripp plays beautiful acoustic guitar on this album. Epitaph being his best performance IMO. So, yes it is one of the top five progressive cds in all prog rock, it was also the first. Very essential, and very enjoyable.
