5 stars KING CRIMSON were found in 1967 in Bournemouth,UK by mastermind guitarist Robert Fripp.Their first album was released in 1969 entitled ''In the court of the crimson king'' and it is considered the first trully progressive rock album and one of the timeless masterpieces in progressive rock history.The band combined succesfully elements from psychedelic music and jazz rock dressed in masterful symphonic orchestrations due to the fantastic mellotron work of Ian McDonald.The vocals of Greg Lake are ethereal and fit amazingly with the band's musicianship.KING CRIMSON leave a lot of space for orchestral development and bring to surface really astonishing atmospheres!An album and a group ages ahead of its/their time and a must-have for any music lover!
