5 stars Having discovered the amazing development of Giles, Giles & Fripp leading to the formation of King Crimson, I do think that "The Cheerful Insanity" is an essential. Not only is the music very well played, and of excellent lusicianship, but the mode of the music is highly thoughtful, humorous and perfec original representations of innovative psychadelic/ British prog rock mainstays in the repertoire of timeless rock.

Amongst the entire album, which is thoroughly well organized, the cuts, "Under the Sky", "She is Loaded", and "The Elephant Song" provide fine examples of complex musicianship, dreamy psychadelia, cockney humor, and independently glorious tracks. I had only wished that their earlier version of King Crimson's "I Talk to the Wind" would have appeared on this highly enjoyable album as well.
