4 stars Lizard is arguably King Crimson's jazziest record, which makes it one of my favorites from early era King Crimson. The change in vocalist is largely unimportant, as the vocals were never a strong point in King Crimson's music, and I've always felt that the band created a greater atmosphere as instrumental writers. Most of the songs here are slightly comparable to "Cat Food" on the previous album in that they are all strongly jazz-influenced compositions with fantastic improvisations, but overall sound better and more thought out, but that may just be my imagination. Whereas the last album was very gloomy in atmosphere, this album manages to be quite playful and fun among the incredible musicianship and creative writing.

Highly recommended.
