5 stars This is really a remarkable album! The birth of a giant! This is Crimson at their creative and imaginative peak. 21st century schizoid man is a heavy, jazzy masterpiece. Superb! I talk to the wind is beautifull and skillfully executed. Epitaph is the most dramatic song you'll ever hear and shows off greg lake at his finest vocal hour. Moonchild is mysterious and includes a long jam that really takes you to another place. I think it adds to the album, although most think otherwise. And finally the closer, the title track! Some of the best lyrics i've ever heard (thanks to peter sinfield of course) and the mellotron is excellent. Also includes a quirky little 'puppet dance' section which is full of character! This album is simply essential to any prog collection. You cannot overlook this masterpiece. From the strange intro to the abrupt ending, an entire dream of music awaits you who are fortunate enough to get your sweaty prog hands on this! A perfect balance of imagination and sheer musical excellence. Highly recomended!
