1 stars King Crimsons original (Diabolical Prog Monster Unleashed).In the Court of the Crimson King is a Dreadful album,absolutely Horrendous,one of the most popular half baked albums in all rock history.The actual production of this thing sounds like a 78rpm,Gramophone Shellac recording of the 1930"S,which renders the complete album for what its worth today and will be in the future, Historical Interest Only being,(the birth of prog).Most similar albums of this era,of the 60'S,had high production value and as such sound like masterpieces and stand like monuments to rock history,but this classic piece of crimson is now about as appetising as last nites pizza.I actually feel the album should be not only re-recorded but completly re-performed,but not by Fripp but given too one of the new Scandinavian Death Metal acts to give it what it truly needs, that being (life),because all the songs are basically there and can be salvaged.The entire album should be re- worked in a fashion that brings the necessary weight and depth that all these songs should have recieved ,and given modern production.
