5 stars I bought Red Queen to Gryphon Three when it first came out back in the 70s. I thought it was a masterpiece then and it has continued to be one of my favorite albums of any style not just progressive rock. It puts all other Gryphon albums in the shade going well beyond the typical folk rock genre. It weaves in classical, folk and progressive themes without any noodling pretentiousness. I like all the tracks but the standouts for me are Opening Move and Lament. Why Gryphon aren't considered to be on a par with prog royalty is a mystery to me but perhaps it is because their other albums didn't have the stature of Red Queen. Thoroughly recommended.
