2 stars This complex web of symphonic textures, manic rhythms and challenging melodies makes "Lizard" a very deep album-- one that is exceptionally challenging to listen to and even harder to appreciate. Ultimately the verdict on this one will become a serious matter of taste; for my own part I find this incarnation of KC somewhat directionless, devoid of backbone and lacking any dazzling moments of song writing or instrumental performance to leave much impression-- the music here is just so abstract and meandering. I enjoy most of the soft guitar work throughout, and admit that after MANY listens "Lizard's" sound will start to come together, but it just isn't worth the effort when I have much more interesting King Crimson albums waiting for me. For serious fans of the band only.
