5 stars So, now it's the time for my to review maybe the most important album in the progressive history. This album is total. No down points on this one. Great lyrics, Fripp's guitar, Lake's voice, mellotrones, flutes - everything is in the right place. And the cover of the lp - WOW! One of the best I saw in my whole life. 21st Century Schizoid Man - a genious track with heavy guitar, distorted vocals, and that kind of madness that only Crimson had. I Talk To The Wind - a very nice tune with flute. Gentle, soft and relaxing. Epitaph is one of the evergreen's of rock music. Beautiful ballad played with passiom and power. Moonchild is a suprising song. Starts like a ballad with a very good melody, then there are only musical experiments for 10 minutes. And In The Court Of The Crimson King, the title track. Power, madness, lyricism everything is in it. A true masterpiece. You can't miss with that one.
