5 stars Debut album in 1969 that pulls out last album substantial 'Abbey Road' of The Beatles and acquires No.1 hit. King Crimson go up to existence that keeps having a large influence on the Rock scene after this work.

Actually, all factors of the Prog Rock that we image are put in this work(rock'n'roll, country, folk, jazz, and classics). Stoic imagination that invents philosophical lyrics to which sense of beauty close for performance ability to control knowledge, complication that skillfully combines wide materials, and music made difficult perfectly and frenzy explodes and novel sound image. It is easy to imagine the impact that this work to which the balance that can be called these elements miraculous is kept brings to a music scene at that time. It must be a work that includes the impact of the cover jacket that remains on the lock history, listens to future generations, and is succeeded.
