5 stars I've waited so many years for these recordings from our capital Amsterdam, I only had some poor bootleg tapes. This is King Crimson at their heyday, it's such a progressive powerhouse: the howling and biting guitarplay from Mr. Fripp, the agressive basswork and strong, very distinctive vocals from John Wetton, the dynamic and inventive drums from Bill Bruford and the spectacualr violin sound from David Cross. And, last but not least,THE MELLOTRON!! Not every track is my cup of tea, some sound too experimental and too fragmentic, but most compositions are pivotal progrock, so captivating and compelling featuring a constant tension between the mellow (feminine) parts and the agressive (masculine) pieces, you can read about that in Edward Macan's excellent book "Rocking the classics".
