5 stars Considering this album marks the beginning of the prog-rock era and that this was a production of 1969-- I would certainly mark it with five stars. the court is a majestic piece that founded a style followed by many in the early seventies. I talk to the wind and epitaph are also great pieces-- if not very unusually structured. Moonchild represents the early KC album structure in which creating a soundscape will represent a song. Overall this album is full of challenges and new ideas as a starter of a new genre and nobody can ignore it. However the biggest plus point of this album, to me, is not its music-- but its poetry. Every piece contains unusually well-written lyrics. KC had been good with lyrics and its anti-war theme spoke of the time very well.
