5 stars The best debut album of all time! This is "In the court of King Crimson," the debut album of King Crimson and has revolutionized the rock, giving rise to prog rock.

It starts with "21st Century Schizoid Man," a song absurdity.Her is fast and aggressive, and it gives me pleasure to hear the distorted guitar of Robert Fripp, showing why he is one of the best guitarists of all times.Next track, "I talk with the wind," is my favorite album, and totally opposite of the earlier-it is quiet and reflective, and absurdly beautiful. "Epitaph" is a treat for lovers of Melotron, and it is quite another track beautiful. "Moonchild" is the largest-and worst-of album.Are 12 minutes flat, and I almost could not hear it for complete.The first two minutes are cool, there is a beautiful melody, but then there's an instrumental improvisation What is ridicule.God, I hate this song! Fortunately, all is not lost, because there is still the title track to save the album (thank God!). The chorus is wonderful, and again we have the presence of the mellotron.

(10/10) -21st Century Schizoid Man -I talk with the wind -Epitaph -In the court of king crimson

(5 / 10) -Moonchild (I'll just give 5 score by two minutes early, but I would give a zero)
