Prog Reviewer
4 stars There isn't much to say about this album that hasn't already been said. In The Court of the Crimson King is King Crimson's beautiful debut album and is one of the earliest progressive rock albums ever released. This music was absolutely wild for the time when it was originally released, and still holds a high standard for progressive rock bands to attempt to reach. Before this came out, there was nothing quite like it. It's beautiful, it's harsh, it's got jazz, it's got epic lush atmosphere. It's the complete progressive rock package slammed into one nearly perfect album. A definite classic, and this serves as the perfect introduction to an entire genre that this album single handedly created.
